Philippe Senderos is finally a Rangers player. After the longest medical in history, and suggestions he was holding out for a better offer from elsewhere, the former Arsenal, Valencia and AC Milan stopper put pen to paper on a one-year deal.

Senderos has been training with Rangers for several weeks now and will make his debut in this weekend’s testimonial game against Linfield before making his competitive bow agaisnt Celtic on September 10th. Senderos joins Danny Wilson, Rob Kiernan and Clint Hill as Warburton’s central defensive option and will hopefully provide a more solid presence in the back-line.

Rangers have also released Andy Murdoch on a free before tonight's transfer deadline. Murdoch broke into the first team two seasons, becoming a regular under Stuart McCall, but couldn't find a way into Warburton’s plans. The midfielder spent most of last season on loan at Queen of the South and featured last night for the U20s as they saw off Falkirk 3-1.
