Rangers have completed the free signing of Gareth McAuley, and fans think it could be the perfect way to end their summer shopping spree.
Rangers confirmed their final signing of the summer on Monday, as McAuley will sign a one-year deal subject to international clearance.
The transfer window has of course closed, but McAuley can still sign as he was a free agent before the window closed.
Reports claim both Hearts and Aberdeen were chasing the 38 year-old, but Gerrard and Rangers have now won the race.

McAuley scored 15 league goals during his seven year stay with West Brom, and standing at 6 ft 5 in will fit in perfectly alongside the giant centre back core Gerrard is building.
None of Nikola Katic, Connor Goldson or Joe Worrall have lots of first team experience, so the capture of McAuley could prove vital in guiding the trio throughout the season.
Lots of fans have been giving their verdict, and you can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below…

Two names for comparison who didn’t do too badly – Davie Weir and Clint Hill.
