Tom Lawrence contract details shared after Rangers confirm signing

Rangers have confirmed that Tom Lawrence has signed for the club on a free transfer, with club partner Heart & Hand podcast sharing it is a three-year deal.

The ex-Derby midfielder left the League One club at the expiry of his contract at the end of the season and had been set for Sheffield United before Giovanni van Bronckhorst stepped in and brought him to Ibrox.

After confirming the deal was done on their official Twitter account, the club didn’t state how long the player’s newly signed contract was in their official statement.

But club partners Heart & Hand tweeted out on their account that his contract was for three years with the option of a fourth season, the same as fellow new signing Antonio Colak.

Lawrence is already in Portugal with the team to take part in the training camp with his new teammates, according to Four Lads Had a Dream.

Good stuff

Lawrence is now tied down to the club for the best years of his career, and it seems as though a replacement for Joe Aribo has been sorted on a shoestring budget.

Lawrence has got experience playing in the Premier League and Championship as well as internationally with Wales, with 23 caps for his country.

Tying him down to a long-term deal allows the club to plan freely with him being in the squad, but they also know that as he begins to enter the twilight of his career they will have the ability to cut ties if necessary.

Now though they can look towards the new season with a strong new player as part of the squad, with his goals and creativity a big addition to a side set to lose someone like Aribo.

Lawrence has his future sorted and Rangers have their attack bolstered ahead of the new season, so it seems like a deal that suits everybody.
