Bruno Alves reveals the reasons he's signed for club

PEDRO CAIXINHA is thrilled that Bruno Alves has agreed to sign a two-year deal with Rangers and he believes the Portuguese defender has all the attributes to be a big success at the club.

Caixinha has been chasing the defender and will be hoping the 35-year-old will be able to bring his experience to the Rangers dressing room and the backline next season.

Alves has 89 caps for Portugal and is part of the Euro 2016 champions' squad for the Confederations Cup in Russian Federation.

"I have this feeling and desire to win and I think to move here will bring this back to me and my career. At nearly all the clubs I've been at I've won and I expect to win here for the fans and for the club".

Bruno Alves has won 89 caps for Portugal.

Rangers new boy Bruno Alves has told the club's official website that he is happy to have Pedro Caixinha as his manager having completed his move to Ibrox today.

'It is going to be an unbelievable journey, I am sure about that'.

"I have so many great memories of what I've left (at Cagliari) and what I want to leave here". He was so important for me to join the team and I think he's capable and able to win.

Alves has played at Ibrox before having been part of the Porto side that lost 3-2 in the Champions League group stages in 2005.

However, he came off the bench when the sides met again the following November in Portugal, when a late Ross McCormack goal secured a 1-1 draw for the Light Blues. "It's a fantastic environment".
