Naismith joins Everton from Rangers


Everton manager David Moyes admits he has benefited from the "tragedy" that has befallen Rangers by snapping up Steven Naismith on a free transfer.

The 25-year-old cancelled his contract with the soon-to-be-liquidated Scottish side after refusing to move over to the newco club. Everton took advantage, getting in ahead of a number of rivals to sign the forward on a four-year contract – but that did not make Moyes feel any better about what was happening in Scottish football.

"It is a tragedy for Rangers. I'm from the city myself so I know exactly what it means and it is a terrible situation," said the former Celtic defender.
