Rangers have completed the signing of Belgian midfielder Nicolas Raskin from Standard Liege.
The 21-year-old has scored once in 18 games this season for Liege, who are sixth in the Belgian top flight.
The Belgian Under-21 player has signed a long-term contract for an undisclosed fee, subject to a work permit.
“I feel very excited to be here and very proud to be joining a very big club. It was very exciting when I was told about the interest from Rangers,” Raskin said.
“I can’t wait to play at Ibrox and I can’t wait to make my debut – hopefully it will be as soon as possible.”
Raskin becomes Rangers manager Michael Beale’s second signing following the arrival last week of midfielder Todd Cantwell from Norwich City.
Born in Liège, he started his career at Standard but evolved as a young player in Anderlecht and Ghent before returning in 2019 to his first club, for which he played 96 matches in all competitions.
He had been linked with a move to several other European clubs during the January transfer window, with his Liège contract expiring this summer.
“As a football club, Nicolas is a player we have followed for a long time and we are very happy to welcome him and his family to Rangers,” Beale said.
“He is a young player who has already accumulated good experience in national and European competition. I look forward to working closely with him and integrating him into our team.”
Raskin featured against Rangers in December 2020 when he came off the bench in a 3-2 win for the Ibrox side in the Europa League group stage.
