Rangers have signed Manchester United goalkeeper Jack Butland on a pre-contract, subject to international clearance.
The 30-year-old, who has nine England caps, will officially move to Ibrox on July 1 after agreeing a four-year deal with the Scottish side, following the expiry of his contract at Crystal Palace.
Butland had been on loan at Manchester United this season and will compete with Jon McLaughlin and Robby McCrorie to become Rangers’ new No 1 after Allan McGregor’s departure at the end of his deal.
Manchester United released an official statement on their website to confirm Butland move to Rangers.
“On-loan Manchester United goalkeeper Jack Butland will join Scottish giants Rangers on a permanent transfer upon the conclusion of his terms at Old Trafford,” the club confirmed.
“The 30-year-old has spent the second half of the season with the Reds after completing a temporary switch from parent club Crystal Palace in January.
“Butland’s move to Rangers, on a four-year deal, will become effective on 1 July, the day after his United contract expires.
The shot-stopper did not make an appearance for the Reds during his short stay in M16 but was a welcome addition to our goalkeeping department, adding further top-flight and international experience for a busy period in the season.”
