RANGERS are today delighted to announce the signing of Rabbi Matondo from Schalke 04 on a four-year deal for an undisclosed fee, subject to international clearance.
The 21 year-old winger becomes the fourth signing of the summer for Gio van Bronckhorst’s Gers, and further adds to the attacking talent already secured by the club in the last week.
A full Welsh internationalist with 11 caps to his name, Matondo spent his youth career at Cardiff City and then Manchester City, before making the switch to Gelsenkirchen and Schalke in 2019.
He spent last season on-loan at Cercle Bruges, and netted nine goals in 26 top-flight appearances in Belgium.
He is now a Ranger and will join his new teammates in training this afternoon.
Speaking after signing his deal, a delighted Matondo commented: “I am absolutely buzzing to have signed for a club as big as Rangers.
“This is a big club with a massive history, and I just want to create more memories and more history here at the club.”
Manager, Gio van Bronckhorst, continued: “I’m really pleased to welcome Rabbi to Rangers. I spoke last week about my desire to add more attacking quality to my squad, and we all believe Rabbi will do that.
Sporting Director, Ross Wilson, added: “We have been quietly working to secure Rabbi’s signature for the last few weeks since the June internationals finished.
“We wanted to invest in a wide player this summer and we are excited with what Rabbi will bring to our group, with his speed and his general style of play.
"At 21 years-old there’s lots more to come from Rabbi and he will be a strong investment and addition to our group.”
