Candeias becomes fourth summer signing for Rangers

Portuguese winger Daniel Candeias has become the latest player to join Pedro Caixinha’s Rangers revolution by signing a two-year deal at Ibrox. Candeias joins Bruno Alves, Ryan Jack and Fabio Cardoso as new permanent signings through the door with Eduardo Herrera, Carlos Pena and Graham Dorrans likely to follow suit over the next few days. Winger Dalcio has also joined on loan.

The 29-year-old moves to Scotland from Benfica, where had had been since 2014, becoming the second player this week to swap Lisbon for Govan and has represented the Portuguese national team at all age group levels up to Under 23.

Candeias has worked with manager Pedro Caixinha before; the pair had a stint together at Portuguese side Nacional, and most recently spent the season on loan in Turkey with Alanyaspor where he scored four times in 30 appearances.
