Dundee United striker Jon Daly has said that he wants to complete the much anticipated switch to Rangers as soon as possible. The 30-year-old is out of contract at the end of the season and he is close to sealing a switch to Rangers, who were recently promoted to the Scottish second division.

The 30-year-old had offers from other clubs like Fleetwood town and Hibs, but he has revealed that the opportunity to join up with Ally McCoist was simply too good to turn down. McCoist was a great goal scorer during his time and he could help Jon Daly in the final years of his playing career.

Jon Daly is expected to sign a two-year contract with Rangers, and he is already looking forward to working with McCoist. He is waiting for the results from his medical in order to sign the contract. There have been many who have questioned the ambition of the 30-year-old to join a club in the Scottish second division. However, he has said that the opportunity to play in front of more than 40,000 proved to be a decisive factor indeed. Rangers have the option of extending the contract by one more year depending upon his performances.

“Once I spoke to Ally McCoist, I knew it would be Rangers.He’s a manager I have a lot of time for. I am 30 and I can still learn and there is nobody better to learn off than Ally, who was a fantastic striker. It is a move where I feel I can progress as a player. I’ve done a medical so I’m just waiting to hear back on that. If that’s OK, then it should be done. I think Rangers were quite pleased with the shape of me. I think they just wanted to scan that for their own records,” said Daly.
