Rangers have confirmed the signing of defender Ben Davies from Liverpool, with the player signing a four year contract at the club.

Davies was signed by the Reds amid an injury crisis in 2021 - while Virgil van Dijk and a number of other defenders were out injured - but didn't make a single appearance for the club. The 26-year-old spent the 2021/22 season out on loan at Championship club Sheffield United.

The Gers club statement on the signing reads: "Rangers Football Club are delighted to announce the signing of Ben Davies from Liverpool on a 4-year contract.

"The experienced central defender becomes Rangers’ sixth new addition of the summer transfer window."

Speaking after making the move to the club's official website, Davies said: “I am very excited to join Rangers and I am really looking forward to taking this next step in my career."

This excitement over the signing was shared by manager Giovanni van Bronckhorst: “I would like to welcome Ben to our squad and I am delighted he has joined the club. He is a strong defender with great qualities and will further add to our options in that area."

The defender is said to be the club's replacement for Calvin Bassey, who is set to make a big money move to Dutch giants Ajax.
