Newco Rangers sign Black and Little

Rangers have signed Ian Black and re-signed Andy Little after being granted conditional Scottish Football Association membership.

Midfielder Black was a free agent after his contract with Hearts expired last term and joins the Ibrox club on a three-year deal.

Northern Ireland striker Little's previous contract with Rangers expired at the end of last season and he has committed himself to two years with the option of a third year.

The registration of both players cannot be fully completed until next Friday, although boss Ally McCoist may be able to use the pair as trialists in Sunday's Ramsdens Cup tie against Brechin.
