A former Everton youth product, Dowell becomes Gers boss Michael Beale’s first signing of the summer transfer window as he looks to rebuild his Ibrox squad.

The ex-England youth international was part of the FIFA Under-20 World Cup winning side back in 2017 and gained first-team experience during loan spells at Nottingham Forest, Sheffield United, Derby County and Wigan Athletic before completing a permanent switch to the Canaries in 2020.

He departs the Carrow Road club having made 75 appearances. Commenting on his move to Govan, Dowell told the club’s official website: “I’m buzzing and really glad to get it done early towards the end of the season.

“I know a lot of Rangers fans and Scottish lads from my previous clubs, and they just speak so highly of Rangers - the intensity of it, the pressure of it - and that is a really good pressure as you are expected to win every game. There were so many positives for me to come here.”

Beale commented: “I am delighted to welcome Kieran to Rangers. He already has great experience in his career, with a number of Premier League appearances, and he is a player we feel will fit well into our squad and our style of football.

“I have seen him develop as a young player through the Everton Academy and also through the England junior and under-21 team. He is a good fit for our squad and has already been a teammate of Tom Lawrence, John Lundstrum and Todd Cantwell in previous clubs.

“It is fantastic, as a club, to be able to complete our first signing ahead of the summer break and I am excited to see what the future holds for Kieran at Rangers.”
