Rangers: Steve Simonsen signs new one-year contract

Goalkeeper Steve Simonsen has signed a new one-year contract to stay with Scottish Championship side Rangers.

The 35-year-old says he turned down several offers in order to stick with the Ibrox outfit for a second season.

"I had a lot of other teams getting in contact and it was a little bit like buses this summer," he said.

"A few in England and Scotland got in touch but as soon as the manager expressed his interest in bringing me back here it was a non-competition."

He added: "This was the only place I wanted to come to and there's massive appeal here because I thoroughly enjoyed it at Rangers last season."

Simonsen was back-up to regular number one Cammy Bell last term as Rangers won the Scottish League One title.

"I could maybe have gone somewhere else as the number one," continued Englishman Simonsen. "But I'm just delighted to be back and I'm looking forward to working alongside Cammy again."
