Former Rangers striker Greg Stewart is set for a move to the Indian Super League after his summer exit from Ibrox.

That’s according to the IFTWC, who claim the 31-year-old attacker has joined ISL side Jamshedpur FC after his contract expired at his boyhood club.

This would represent an unorthodox move for Stewart who to date has never played outside of the United Kingdom, plying his trade with Cowdenbeath, Dundee, Birmingham City, Aberdeen, Kilmarnock and Rangers.

Although at the time of writing the transfer has not been announced, a source close to IFTWC has claimed:


Jamshedpur FC has secured the signature of Greg Stewart. He (Stewart) bid adieu to Rangers FC in the last week of June. As Jamshedpur offer came in, without any delay, he chose the ISL side.

As Rangers didn’t offer contract extension, they (Jamshedpur) were the one whose offer came first.”

Stewart has been a free agent ever since leaving the Gers in the summer following two years with the club he loves.

The attacker’s playing time was certainly limited at Ibrox – Stewart was a squad player at Ibrox, making 33 appearances for the Gers and scoring three times – the player cherished his time at Rangers.

Speaking upon his release, Stewart took to Instagram to express is delight at contributing to the club’s Scottish Premiership success and Rangers’ legendary 55th league crown:

While the forward might never have cemented a first team place at the club Rangers fans certainly value his contribution and will wish him all the best in the Indian Super League.

The reported move also comes after links to a team of Scottish Premiership rivals who, up until recently, had European ambitions
