Kyle Lafferty: Off to Switzerland

The Northern Ireland striker has signed a three-year deal after rejecting the chance to 'transfer' to the newco Rangers.

Lafferty, who joined Rangers from Burnley in 2008, played more than 100 times for the Light Blues.

A statement on the Swiss club's official website announced his three-year contract, adding: "He will be presented at a press conference on Monday, then will join his new team-mates for training.''
