Former Ibrox legend sealed Garner's move to Rangers
Joe Garner has revealed how he was sold on his move to Rangers by former Ibrox skipper Lorenzo Amoruso.
The £1.7million striker sealed his switch from Preston on Saturday after admitting it was too good a move to turn down.
Garner revealed he has had one eye on the Light Blues since his days as a teenager at Blackburn, when he shared a dressing room with Italian defender Amoruso.
Garner - who has signed a three-year deal after being lured north by Mark Warburton - told RangersTV: “You’ve seen some massive stars up here, and when I was a kid at Blackburn, Lorenzo Amoruso came down from Rangers and didn’t shut up about what it was like when he was here.
“So I have memories of that, and now I’m just really looking forward to getting involved and playing my part here.
“It was a couple of weeks ago now I first heard about the interest from Rangers and once I spoke to the manager here and heard his ideas, I knew there was only one place I wanted to go and I really wanted to be a part of things here.
“I spoke to a few other clubs, but I was happy with where I was at the time, but once Rangers came in I felt it was an opportunity I couldn’t turn down. The possibility of winning trophies and medals, as well as playing in front of massive crowds every week, really made me want to be a part of things.”
