New Rangers signing Jordan Thompson reacts on Twitter after completing 'dream' Ibrox move

Former Manchester United midfielder Jordan Thompson has signed for Rangers.

Rangers have today confirmed on their official website that Northern Irish midfielder Jordan Thompson has signed a two-year contract at Ibrox.

Thompson, 18, was released by Manchester United earlier this summer, and has recently spent time training with Rangers in a bid to earn a contract.

New manager Mark Warburton has already added young players in defender Tom Lang and striker Jordan Gibson, and now he has snapped up another teenager in Thompson..

Primarily a left sided midfielder, Thompson will be seen as one for the future at Rangers, and will be playing with the club's youth setup whilst he gains experience.

Having completed his move to Glasgow, Thompson took to his Twitter account to discuss the move, admitting that the transfer is a 'dream' for him, having wanted to play for the club from a young age.

Building for the future

Given the threadbare nature of the Rangers squad, new manager Warburton has had to bring in three first team players already this summer.

Yet with few options in the youth seteup, he has also had to replenish the academy ranks this summer, bringing in Lang, Gibson and now Thompson.

All three will be seen as players who make an impact in the future for Rangers, especially under a manager like Warburton who loves to develop and work with young players - giving the trio a great chance of future success at Ibrox.
