Aberdeen have signed former Rangers defender Steven Smith on loan until the end of the season.

The 25-year-old left-back makes the switch from Norwich after enduring a stop-start period of his career there since he left Ibrox last summer.

He made his debut for Rangers as a 19-year-old in 2004 but after a promising spell was hit by a pelvic injury.

Smith moved to the Championship side to play regular first-team football but injured his Achilles in pre-season.

Meanwhile, Aberdeen striker Andrius Velicka, on loan from Rangers, and defender Jerel Ifil are to leave the club.

English defender Ifil made 51 appearances for Aberdeen after being signed by Mark McGhee but his first-team chances were limited under Craig Brown.
