Carson moves to Dundee United
Stephen Carson's chances at Ibrox were limited
Stephen Carson's chances at Ibrox were limited
Winger Steve Carson has completed his move from Rangers to Dundee United.

United manager Alex Smith had final talks with the player at Tannadice on Monday.

BBC Scotland understands that Carson has signed a three-year deal for a fee of around 150,000.

The 20-year-old Northern Ireland Under-21 international has started only four games for the Rangers first team and is keen to move on to gain regular top-team football.

Right-wing role

Ulsterman Carson had turned down Manchester United in favour of Ibrox four years ago, but he had become frustrated at a lack of first-team opportunities.

Carson said: "It's nice to have a manager who wants to give you the chance of first-team football.

"I enjoyed my time at Ibrox, but I'm glad to be here with the chance to play in the SPL. United appear to be going places."

He is likely to start on the bench away to St Johnstone on Saturday.

Carson can play on either flank but is expected to be handed a right-wing role by United manager Alex Smith.
