Dorin Goian completes switch to Rangers
Dorin Goian knows he still has a lot to learn about his new club after completing his move to Rangers subject to a work permit and international clearance.
But the Romania international defender is confident he can help the Scottish champions win more silverware, after hailing Rangers as one of the top clubs in Europe.
Goian, 30, agreed his move to the Glasgow giants last night after a fee was agreed with Palermo for his services, making him manager Ally McCoist's third capture of the summer.
Goian told http://www.rangers.co.uk "For me, it is a big honour to play for a club such as Rangers with so much history.
"They are one of the top teams in Europe and they have been playing in the Champions League for many years.
"At this moment, I have only good feelings about this move. I do not know a lot about Rangers and I have only really seen them playing on television.
"I don't really know about the players we have but I know about Mr McCoist because he was a very good player and he is now our manager.
"This is a different challenge for me but it is a good one. I have changed team and the country I am playing in but I am a fighter and I know everything here is going to be okay for me."
Goian, who joins on a three-year deal for an undisclosed fee, is well aware of the demands to deliver success at Rangers and says he is relishing the prospect of winning silverware with the Scottish champions.
He added: "I am very excited about being here. I am joining a very big club in Rangers and I want to win lots of trophies here.
"I know that is what the people here expect and I do not want to disappoint them. I want to be as successful as the supporters want us to be."
McCoist said: "I think what you see is what you get - he is a strong, aggressive defender who will attack the ball and win his challenges."
