Joe Garner: Rangers legend Lorenzo Amoruso sold me on move north to Ibrox

By Staff Reporter

Joe Garner has revealed how he was sold on his move to Rangers by former Ibrox skipper Lorenzo Amoruso.

The £1.5million striker sealed his switch from Preston on Saturday after admitting it was too good a move to turn down.

Garner revealed he has had one eye on the Light Blues since his days as a teenager at Blackburn, when he shared a dressing room with Italian defender Amoruso.

Garner said: "When I was a kid at Blackburn, Lorenzo Amoruso came down from Rangers and didn't shut up about what it was like when he was here. So I have memories of that, and I'm really looking forward to playing my part here.

"It was a couple of weeks ago now I first heard about the interest from Rangers and once I spoke to the manager, I knew there was only one place I wanted to go and I really wanted to be a part of things here."
