Boyhood Rangers fan lands exciting move after summer Ibrox exit

Former Rangers striker Greg Stewart has landed a new club after leaving Ibrox at the end of last season – linking up with Owen Coyle at Indian side Jamshedspur FC.

The boyhood Rangers fan lived the dream last season as he helped the Gers to 55 and an undefeated league season and will now try his luck on the other side of the world with the ISL side.

Stewart is looking forward to getting started with his new teammates and is excited to work under the former St. Johnstone, Burnley, Houston Dynamo, Wigan, Ross County and Falkirk manager.

“I am so excited to see what this season has in store for us,” Stewart said.

“It’s a new adventure for me and one I am really looking forward to.

“It’s going to be an amazing experience to work under Owen Coyle and give everything on the pitch to get silverware for Jamshedpur. I just can’t wait to get started.”

Stewart will retain the number 24 he wore at Ibrox and will find another familiar face in the Indian side’s squad in ex-Motherwell star Peter Hartley.

Coyle is delighted to add Stewart to his side, telling fans they can expect lots of chances from their “menacing” front line this season.

The well-travelled boss said that Stewart fits the bill “perfectly” for what he was looking for as he lauded his side’s newest acquisition, adding: “We were looking for a versatile and creative midfielder in the market to complete a menacing group of attacking players for our squad.

“Greg fit into that criterion perfectly. He comes with exemplary experience of playing in the biggest leagues across the UK.

“And of course, he had an amazing opportunity to play for one of the Glasgow giants which shows he has a strong and winning mentality.
