The 27-year-old, who has agreed a three-year deal, was out of contract having made 62 appearances in England's top flight in the last two seasons.

Lundstram and Rangers' manager are from the same part of Liverpool.

"I spoke with the manager and I was just taken aback by his ambition, vision and drive," the midfielder said.

"I know Glasgow is like Liverpool - a proper football city with proper football fans and I know the people are very similar. As an outsider looking in, the scenes last season were unbelievable when the club won the league and, when I saw that, I knew I wanted to be a part of it."

Lundstram told Rangers' website working under Gerrard's backroom staff "was a huge draw" and the prospect of Champions League football "was also massive for me".
