Before joining Liverpool in 2008, Konopinksi had spells with Leeds United and Barnsley and joins a sizeable former Liverpool contingent at Ibrox with Gerrard, Milsom, Michael Beale, Gary McAllister and Tom Culshaw, Jon Flanagan, Andy Firth and Ryan Kent having all been at Anfield at some stage of their career.

 

Konopinksi’s move to Ibrox has been on the cards for several months with reports as far back as September claiming he was Ibrox-bound.
