Kanchelskis move to Rangers
Kanchelskis left Everton in 1995
Rangers have broken their Scottish transfer record by paying £5.5m for Andrei Kanchelskis.
Kanchelskis is the fifth player to be signed this summer by Rangers' new coach Dick Advocaat, and takes the club's summer spending spree to over £20m.
The 29-year-old has signed to stay at Ibrox for four years.
The former Manchester United winger spent nearly two years in Italy with Fiorentina after leaving Everton in 1995.
Rangers made their offer on Monday, heading off interest from Middlesbrough and Newcastle.
Kanchelskis has admitted that his friend, and former Rangers star, Alexei Mikhailichenko, had convinced him to move to Glasgow.
"Alexei told me it was an excellent club, the best one he ever played for in his life," he said.
"He thinks it is the best club in the world. He said it was very well organised, they have a very good team and it is an excellent place to play football.
"If there is mutual understanding and we work and play as a team, we will get the results," he said.
Other £5m players purchased by Rangers this year include Dutch international duo Arthur Numan and Giovanni van Bronckhorst, plus Argentine forward Gabriel Amato.
