Rangers sign Salim Kerkar


Recommended Posts

RANGERS have signed Algerian midfielder Salim Kerkar on a short term deal until the end of the current season.

The left sided player has spent a lengthy spell training with the first team at Murray Park and will now join Walter Smith's squad on a permanent basis subject to international clearance.

It settles a long drawn out deal for the player who spent the last three seasons in the French leagues with Guegnon and Calais.

He has featured in a number of closed doors games at the club's training facility while waiting for the details of the deal to be thrashed out.

His performances in those outings impressed the coaching staff with Ally McCoist pleased to see him performing well.

"He is a lad who is shaping up well. He is a nice lad but more importantly he has a good left foot."

Kerkar will now continue to train with the first team group and subject to gaining the relevant international clearance will become eligible for first team fixtures for the remainder of the season.


Welcome to the club. Another option, hopefully he get's his chances and takes them!

Low risk.

I'm happy to add another number to the squad, especially a left footer.

He won't be costing a lot in wages, I just hope he gets a few chances to show us what he can do.

The way Ally McCoist said the other week "he will excite the fans" makes me sit up a bit. The may just have a plan for this guy.
