New signing: "I only know Rangers"

Declan John has made up for his slightly unfortunate forename by pointing out that while unfamiliar with Scottish football, the only team he knew was the Famous.

The 22-year old left flanker admitted he jumped at the chance to join Rangers, but that equally, beyond them, he did not know anyone in Scotland, including Glasgow’s other derby giants, Partick Thistle (!)

Speaking through official club channels he said:

“I’ve only really seen Rangers on TV and I know there is a massive derby up here, so I’m looking forward to hopefully playing in those sorts of games."

It is surprising to see how interested he is in Rangers travelling to Firhill, but who are we to judge?

He also knows Rangers with countryman Andy Dibble’s time north (to an extent):

“Someone tweeted me earlier to say that (Dibble played at Ibrox), and I didn’t know Dibs had played up here. I gave him a quick message and he told me this is a great club and I would really enjoy it.

Being serious though we wish John the best – and wonder if he is being viewed as a potential substitute for the failed Jamie Walker deal.
