RANGERS striker Zak Rudden has signed a new one-year deal at Ibrox.

Rudden scored in Steven Gerrard's first game as Light Blues boss last season as the Gers beat Bury in a friendly.

And he then impressed in the Championship as he scored 12 goals in 31 appearances for Falkirk.

Rudden has now been given another campaign to prove himself at Ibrox after putting pen-to-paper on a 12 month extension.

He told RangersTV: “I am delighted for the club to back me again and give me another deal, I am over the moon.

“I’ve developed a lot and I think I’ve become more like a man now instead of being like a wee boy at the start of last season, so I think I have come into myself a lot.

“I was lucky with the life I was living then I went to Falkirk and the fans were brilliant with me but I did miss being around here.

“I’m going to try and make the Gaffers mind up that he doesn’t need another striker and that I am the guy that can make his squad.

“They said I done well on loan but that there were bits of my game missing and that I need to improve on so that’s what I have been trying to do when I have been away on my break just to try and improve but they were delighted that I made a name for myself scoring goals, I just need to make sure that I am an all-round player.”
