The Welshman has signed a three-and-a-half year deal with the Ibrox side.

Statements from both Cardiff and Rangers confirmed the transfer.

John has made 14 appearances for Rangers this season, scoring two goals - both of which came in a 4-1 win away to Hamilton.

News of John’s signing followed the announcement that Graeme Murty had been appointed manager until the end of the season.
