Matt Polster has left Rangers to sign a permanent deal with New England Revolution.

The US defender has struggled to force his way into the Ibrox first-team with captain James Tavernier ahead of him in the pecking order at right-back.

It is believed the deal is worth around £300,000 to the Light Blues for a player who played just 10 times since his arrival.

Polster, 27, made his debut against Hearts at Tynecastle last April in a 3-1 victory but only managed nine appearances more, with just six of those games in the Scottish Premiership.

His contract at Ibrox was scheduled to run until summer of 2021 but Gers were keen on cashing in on the player, who counts Chicago Fire among his former clubs.

Sporting Director, Ross Wilson said: "We accepted a bid from New England Revolution for Matt last week and we now wish him every success back in the MLS.

"We respect his desire to play regularly and he will be afforded that opportunity back in the US.

"Matt has been an enthusiastic and committed member of our squad with first class attitude. We wish him and his family well for the future.”
