Rangers have signed defender Russell Martin on loan from Norwich City until the end of the season.

The 32-year-old, who has 29 Scotland caps and more than 500 club appearances, has not played since August.

Martin previously worked with Ibrox manager Graeme Murty when the latter was coaching at Norwich.

"At this stage in my career to come here, it really excites me," Martin told Rangers TV.

"It's a challenge as well. Huge football club.

"It was the one that I really wanted to happen. There was other offers from the Championship in England so I'm really pleased to get it done."

Rangers, who are third in the Scottish Premiership and face Fraserburgh in the Scottish Cup on Sunday, have already recruited three other players on loan during the January transfer window.

Jamie Murphy and Sean Goss joined the club's winter break in Florida and Jason Cummings was signed on Monday.

Winger Murphy's switch from Brighton and Hove Albion is with a view to a permanent deal while Rangers have an option to buy forward Cummings from Nottingham Forest at the end of the season.

Goss, who can operate in defence and midfield, is on loan from Queens Park Rangers.
