Harry Forrester has told The Daily Record that he spoke to Rob Kieran before joining Rangers earlier this month.
Forrester moved to the Gers from England’s League One side Doncaster on a six-month loan deal.
“I wasn’t getting much game time at Doncaster and I wanted a deal to go through as soon as possible,” the 25-year-old attacking midfielder told The Daily Record. “I just wanted to get up here and play.
“I spoke to Rob Kiernan. I’ve known him since I was seven, when we were kids together at Watford, and he couldn’t speak highly enough of the club.”
Forrester and Kiernan have played together before, and they are now back to being teammates again.
Kiernan, who is a defender, joined Rangers in the summer of 2015 after leaving Wigan Athletic.
Forrester is a good player, and he will be looking to make himself a regular in the Gers' first team in the coming weeks.
Rangers are going strong at the moment and are on course to winning the Scottish Championship title.
The Glasgow outfit are currently at the top of the league table with 47 points from 49 matches, three points clear of second-placed Falkirk with a game in hand.
Mark Warburton’s side will take on Cowdenbeath at Ibrox in Glasgow in the fourth round of the Scottish Cup on Sunday afternoon.
Rangers will return to Scottish Championship action next weekend when they take on Livingston at home.
