Russell Martin delivers verdict on settling it at Rangers
Rangers new boy Russell Martin insists he is “loving it” at Rangers after joining the Gers on a six-month loan deal from Championship Norwich City.
The 32-year-old defender was the Gers’ fourth signing of the transfer window and has immediately forced his way into Graeme Murty’s starting XI in the games against Aberdeen and Ross County.
The veteran has looked a little bit rusty at times but looks like he’ll be a solid signing for the Gers as they look to close ground on league leaders Celtic.
Martin revealed he had been made to feel welcome by the squad and admitted he was “enjoying being here every day.”
“Yeah, I’m loving it,” Martin said in a video posted on the club’s official website.
“It’s an easy group to come into and feel welcome and settle in and it’s a brilliant football club. I’m enjoying being here every day with the facilities and training.
“I’m just really enjoying it.”
Martin spent almost a decade at Carrow Road and made over 300 appearances for Norwich before falling out of favour this season under Daniel Farke.
The 32-year-old has picked up 29 caps for Scotland over his career but hasn’t been involved with the national team since the World Cup qualifying win over Slovenia in March 2017.
Martin is likely to be involved on Wednesday night when they Gers return to north to face Highland League minnows Fraserburgh in the fourth round of the Scottish Cup with a date with Ayr awaiting the winners in the next round.
