'Prove us wrong' - Rangers fans react as international midfielder confirms move to League One
Former Rangers midfielder Jordan Thompson has signed a two-year deal with League One Blackpool – and Gers fans are sad to see the 21-year-old leave the Gers after three years at Ibrox.
The Northern Irish international confirmed he had signed with the Seasiders on his official Twitter account after departing Ibrox at the end of his contract.

Thompson joined the Light Blues from Manchester United in 2015, making three first-team appearances for the Gers but couldn’t force his way into a regular first-team spot.
Gers fans sad to see him leave the Ibrox giants – with one fan saying they were “disappointed (Rangers) didn’t keep” the midfielder.
Here are some of their comments on Twitter:
Best of luck, Jordan!

Good Luck Jordan, I’m disappointed we didn’t keep you at Ibrox. Maybe a return in the future once you have had chance to establish yourself in the heart of a midfield elsewhere

During his time at the Tony Macaroni Arena, Thompson helped Livingston secure promotion back to the Scottish Premiership.
The 21-year-old recently made his full international debut for Northern Ireland, appearing in friendlies with World Cup-bound Panama and Costa Rica.
Thompson will link up with former Ibrox team-mate Joe Dodoo at Bloomfield Road after the former Leicester striker joined Blackpool on a season-long loan on Wednesday.
