Rangers fans react on Twitter to confirmed fourth summer signing

By Derek Smithson

Rangers completed the signing of defender Fabio Cardoso on Wednesday from Portuguese side Vitoria Setubal – and the club’s supporters were delighted on Twitter with the news.

The Gers confirmed on their official website that the 23-year-old has moved to Ibrox on a three-year deal.

He has become the fourth summer signing for manager Pedro Caixinha by following Bruno Alves, Ryan Jack and Dalcio in joining the Scottish giants.

Caixinha’s overhaul is picking up real speed now and Cardoso has become his second defensive signing as he looks to improve his squad.

The centre-back made 27 appearances last season for top-flight club Vitoria and is a highly rated talent.

He has represented his country Portugal up to the Under-20s age level and will now have the chance to link up with compatriot Bruno Alves, who is currently in the senior squad.

Rangers fans were thrilled on social media with Wednesday’s confirmed deal and are now excited about the prospect of a Cardoso-Alves combination at centre-back.

Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Cardoso is yet to play football outside of his homeland, but will now test himself in Scottish football and will link-up with a strong contingent of Portuguese players.

He is a product of the Benfica academy and was a regular in their second side as a youngster.

The defender will now hope to find a home at Ibrox and help Rangers compete both domestically and in Europe next season.
