Rangers defender Rob Kiernan believes the experience of imminent signing John Eustace will prove a valuable asset to the squad.

Ibrox manager Mark Warburton revealed on Thursday that Eustace was close to a deal after training with the club for several months in a bid to prove his fitness.

The 35-year-old former Watford and Derby captain will join a young squad and Kiernan believes everyone else can benefit from his know-how.

Kiernan said: "John's a great guy to have round the place. He has great experience at a high level. I think he'll be good for the young players with his knowledge of the game."

Rangers have been doing very well in the Scottish Championship without Eustace having won their first nine games.

And Kiernan is keen to keep the winning run going for as long as possible as they prepare to open their second round of fixtures against Queen of the South at Ibrox.

The 24-year-old said: "We look at how we can break teams down and score goals.

"I don't know how long the run can go on for, hopefully it can last for a long time. We will see how it goes and just go in the direction we are going."
