Jack was the captain of Aberdeen last season and has played an important role in recent years for his hometown club, but has decided to make the switch to their league rivals.
The central midfielder is renowned for his tidy work in front of the back four and his ability in possession.

Ryan Jack isn't an "exciting" signing as such but he will give us extra steel in midfield. Solid all round player, I'm happy with that ????

Jack will be hoping he can help bolster Pedro Caixinha’s midfield and is likely to compete alongside the likes of Josh Windass, Andy Halliday, Niko Kranjcar and Jamie Barjonas.
The combative midfielder has 18 appearances in the Europa League and should be able to bring some good experience to the Rangers squad.
He has become the second summer signing for the Gers as experienced defender Bruno Alves on Wednesday.
Caixinha is set to undergo a busy transfer window and has already moved quickly to bring in new recruits.
In other Rangers transfer news, they are weighing up a move for a Championship senior man.
