Murphy grew up supporting the Gers and shared photos on his own Twitter account of him as a child wearing various Rangers shirts.
The 28-year-old signed for the Gers on a season-long loan deal with a “guaranteed” permanent move set to happen when the summer transfer window opens in June.
Murphy began his career with Motherwell making 212 appearances for the Steelmen before heading south to sign for Sheffield United in 2013.
During his two-and-a-half year stint with the Blades, Murphy was a key part of the side and earned a transfer to Brighton in 2015.
At Brighton, Murphy played a big part in the Seagulls push for promotion and had a huge role in last season’s success as the south coast side won promotion to the Premier League for the first time.
Despite playing such a big part in winning promotion, Murphy found himself on the sidelines this season and only managed four league appearances in England’s top flight under Chris Hughton.
Murphy is expected to join his new team-mates in the next 24 hours at their Florida training camp as they prepare to face Corinthians and Atletico Mineiro in the Florida Cup.
In latest Rangers news, Gers fans have blasted the Ibrox board for their handling of Murphy’s transfer.
