Adam commits long-term to Rangers

Charlie Adam has signed a new long-term deal at Ibrox
Rangers midfielder Charlie Adam has signed a new five-year contract.

The 21-year-old was one of the Ibrox club's most consistent performers in his breakthrough season.

Adam, who won his first Scotland cap against Austria in May, hit 14 goals and made 42 appearances for Rangers after a full term on loan at St Mirren.

"To come back and play more than 40 games was more than I could have expected," he told the club website. "I'm delighted to get my contract."

Adam signed a three-year deal at Ibrox last October after impressing then manager Paul Le Guen.

But his excellent displays have earned him improved terms.

Manager Walter Smith will have several new faces at his disposal next season and Adam thinks Rangers can challenge champions Celtic.

"I spoke to the manager and his advice influenced my decision to sign such a long-term deal," continued Adam.

"What he said just confirmed my own thoughts and I'm pleased it's all finalised before the games start.

"I will keep working hard and hopefully do well.

"We have strengthened the squad and I believe we can have a good season."
