Rangers defender Filip Helander admits he's been taken aback at the size of the Ibrox club.

Swedish defender Helander joined in the summer from Bologna but wasn't entirely sure what to expect.

The international, 26, has started his Gers career relatively well since his £3.5million move from Serie A.

But he accepts that it's going to take a bit longer for him to completely adapt to the style of the Scottish Premiership and the physicality.

Speaking to Rangers TV, Helander said: "How big the club really is, surprised me a bit.

"I knew it was a big club when I came but maybe not that big.

"Scottish football isn't very similar to what I've played before in Italy so that's been quite a new thing.

"So it might take a few games to get used to that."
