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."
