Flanagan has previous for teaming up with former teammates after his spell in Glasgow with ex-skipper Steven Gerrard.
Flanno joined Rangers in 2018 and was a committed presence at full-back during his performances and is warmly remembered by Gers fans.
However, since leaving Ibrox Flanagan has struggled for football and but for a spell at Belgian club Charleroi – where he failed to play – would’ve been without a club until now.
Despite leaving the club in 2020, a glowing reference from Steven Gerrard was cited as one of the reasons why HB pounced.
“We have long had Jon Flanagan on our list of priority items for the player squad, and are delighted that we have agreed on a deal,” says HB Køge director Per Rud [HB Køge].
“Jon is a fast, physically strong and hard-working full-back who comes with lots of experience from Liverpool and Rangers, among others.
“He comes with some speed, lots of physique, and a determination in his game, which we look forward to benefiting from.
“We are of course aware that Jon Flanagan has not played that much in the last year, but he is in good shape, and Daniel Agger has, among other things, obtained really good references on him from Steven Gerrard in Rangers.
“Daniel also knows Jon Flanagan himself and his qualities from their shared past in Liverpool, and we believe that Jon Flanagan can go on to become a profile here at the club.”
Daniel Agger, 36, has been in charge of HB Køge since June and Flanagan will set about trying to get his former teammate to the Danish top-flight.
Meanwhile, Rangers have signing plans of their own but according to one leading journalist, the Ibrox club will need to sell before they pounce.
