Former Republic of Ireland under-21 striker Jon Daly has been signed by Rangers from Dundee United on a two-year contract.

The Dubliner will sign for the Third Division champions on September 1st, when their transfer embargo expires.

Daly, who had confirmed his intention to sign for Rangers on Sunday, follows Kilmarnock goalkeeper Cammy Bell and Motherwell midfielder Nicky Law in joining the Ibrox side this week.

The 30-year-old was out of contract at Tannadice and had captained the club this season.

Daly, who has also played centre-back for United, scored 72 goals in 203 appearances after signing from Hartlepool in January 2007.
