In what has been an incredibly busy transfer window, Docherty becomes the fifth new signing of the month and the move has been hailed by supporters as a superb one.
Docherty is a boyhood Rangers fan, something that will make him a hero at Ibrox from the off, with fans also looking forward to seeing his talent on the pitch shine through.
The Scotland U21 international has been in fine form for Hamilton this season, scoring three goals and providing six assists, proving to be one of his former clubs most creative talents.
With a huge second half of the season ahead and domestic honours to fight for, fans will be hoping he can replicate those performances at Ibrox and take his game to a new level.
They took to Twitter to celebrate his arrival at the club…
Don’t think I’ve been this excited about a Rangers signing since about 5 days ago when we signed Cummings 🌚 in all honestly though, Docherty will be a star. 💙
