Glasgow Rangers fans seem to have impressed new Ibrox signing Fabio Cardoso.

Rangers defender Fabio Cardoso has told The Glasgow Evening Times that he has been impressed with the club’s fans.

Cardoso has joined Scottish Premiership club Rangers from Portuguese outfit Vitoria Setubal in the summer transfer window.

According to The Daily Record, the Gers had to pay Vitoria Setubal £1.3 million as transfer fee in order to secure the services of the 23-year-old central defender.

The 23-year-old Portuguese centre-back has spoken highly of the Rangers fans and has summed up the Ibrox outfit in one word - “amazing”.

Rangers are one of the biggest clubs in the world and have a loyal following; the Ibrox is one of the best football stadiums on the planet.

The Ibrox faithful will expect Pedro Caixinha’s side will challenge Old Firm rivals Celtic for the Scottish Premiership title.

The Gers have made a number of signings so far in the summer transfer window, and it will be interesting to see how they all gel together.

Rangers fans have suffered in recent years, and perhaps things are about to change for the better.
