RANGERS Football Club are today delighted to announce the signing of defender Jack Simpson from AFC Bournemouth on a pre-contract agreement.
Simpson, 24, has Premier League experience with the Cherries, and this season, has played an important role in their bid to be promoted back to England’s top flight, where they sit in the play-off places, just five points off an automatic promotion slot.
A product of Bournemouth’s Academy, Simpson made his debut for then-manager Eddie Howe’s side in a 3-1 EFL Cup win over Middlesbrough in October 2017 – a game in which he opened the scoring.
His first taste of Premier League action came that season against Manchester City at the Etihad, before establishing himself in the side somewhat at the tail end of the following season, playing a part in their final five matches of the campaign.
That run also included 90 minutes in a 1-0 clean sheet victory over Champions League finalists Tottenham Hotspur.
Commenting on his signing, Sporting Director, Ross Wilson, said: “Jack is a player that Steven [Gerrard] and I have discussed a number of times in recent months.
"We are always looking at how we can improve and Jack fits the profile that we are looking to add as we develop and move the squad forward again.
“His contractual situation at Bournemouth provided a natural and attractive moment for us to pursue Jack’s signature. It has been well publicised that he has been a much-coveted player south of the border but from our first discussion with Jack, we could see how the opportunity to join Rangers was one that was very appealing to him.
“The situation with pre contract negotiations is never an easy one and I extend my thanks to Richard Hughes, my counterpart at Bournemouth, for how he has handled our interest in Jack.”
