Speaking to the club’s official website, Glasgow Rangers assistant manager David Weir has shared his delight at the signings of Matt Gilks and Niko Kranjcar.

Both players arrived at Ibrox last week, becoming Mark Warburton’s sixth and seventh signings of the summer transfer window so far.

Both have been targeted as part of the manager’s desire to add much needed experience to the relatively youthful squad that was successful in the Championship last season.

And Weir is delighted with their arrival, stating that they will allow the squad to be better and push those already at the club.

“Both are really good signings for the club,” he told

“They will fit in and provide competition, which will enable our squad to be better and push the players that are already there.”

It now remains to be seen what other work that Mark Warburton will look to do in the remainder of this summer transfer window.

The remit was evidently to add experience and he has done just that by securing the likes of Kranjcar and Gilks as well as Joey Barton and Clint Hill.

Whether Warburton considers them enough is yet unknown and it will be interesting to see if he looks to add more experienced stars to his squad or targets further youth signings in the mould of Josh Windass and Jordan Rossiter.
