Rangers fans react on Twitter as Gers confirm Helander signing

Rangers have confirmed the signing of Swedish international defender Filip Helander – and fans on Twitter are delighted by the club’s latest signing.
The Swede’s signing was announced earlier today as the defender becomes the eighth summer signing and adds some strength to the Gers back four.

Helander has signed a four-year deal at Ibrox and could come into the side for tomorrow’s friendly clash with Marseille at Ibrox – but won’t be eligible for Rangers’ Europa League clash with St. Joseph’s.
The 26-year-old brings plenty of experience to Ibrox with four years in Serie A under his belt as well as ten caps for his country.
Helander also has experience of playing in the Europa League and Champions League with hometown club Malmo.

His arrival is likely to make things tough for George Edmundson and Nikola Katic with the pairing of Helander and Connor Goldson seeming the obvious pick for the Gers boss.
Gers fans on Twitter are delighted with the Swede’s signing – a few commenting on the 6’4″ defender’s size.
