Preston North End have made former Glasgow Rangers striker Andy Little their fourth signing of the summer.

The Northern Ireland international underwent a medical in Preston on Friday and the deal was completed on Saturday morning after the paperwork was registered with the Football League.

Little has signed a two-year contract and moves to Deepdale on a Bosman having been released by the Ibrox outfit.

PNE boss Simon Grayson said: “Andy has a fantastic goal record in Scotland and he can handle playing for a big club, as he has shown with Rangers. He is also an international player.

“Andy is good age and has some good qualities that we are looking for in the squad.

“He will bring real pace to the striking department and that is something we have been looking to add and I am delighted that he has chosen us over quite a few other teams.”

Enniskillen-born Little joined Rangers’ academy in 2006 and broke into the first-team in the 2009/10 season.

He had a loan spell with Port Vale in 2011 before return to Glasgow and playing in the Scottish Premier League.

After Rangers’ demotion to the Scottish Third Division for financial reasons, Little hit 25 goals in the 2012/13 season.

Last season, he netted six times but missed a chunk of the campaign after suffering a fractured jaw in a game against Dunfermline.

Little will join Jamie Jones, Calum Woods and Jordan Hugill in the Preston arrivals lounge.
