Todd Cantwell is reaping the rewards of his gamble and making the most of his fresh start after leaving Norwich to join Rangers in January.

But the midfielder won't get involved in Kieran Dowell's proposed switch to Ibrox as Michael Beale bids to bolster his squad this summer.

It will be a window of significant change for Rangers and Dowell is poised to follow Cantwell's path and secure a switch from Carrow Road on a free transfer.

Cantwell continued his fine form with the winner against Aberdeen on Sunday but was tight-lipped about the possibility of being reunited with his former Canaries team-mate.

"Yeah, he’s a good player," Cantwell said when asked about Dowell. "He’s someone I enjoyed playing with, we had success at Norwich and he’s a top lad.

"None of that is really to do with me. It’s the manager's choice, the club's choice and his choice. If that is something that happens then I’m sure the Rangers fans will be happy.

"In terms of recruitment, it’s kind of irrelevant because you’ve a group of players in pre-season fighting to be in the starting eleven.

"We’ve got everything to play for next season and the hunger in the dressing room will be real. Whoever is there playing for Rangers, it’s important to know you’ll be fighting for your spot and to win every game.

"It’s important you weigh up your opportunities. I can only speak for myself but it was a massive decision but also one that I’m really proud of making. It’s not one that is common to come up here and show what I’m about."

The signings of Cantwell and Nicolas Raskin were the first moves that Beale made to overhaul the squad that he inherited from Giovanni van Bronckhorst on his return to Ibrox.

And the playmaker knows Rangers must raise their levels ahead of the new campaign if they are to stop a Celtic side that are on the brink of a domestic clean sweep this term.

Cantwell said: "Pre-season is always important. I know the manager is looking at recruitment but it’s also important for us as individuals to get your body in the right condition.

"I think it’s playing for Rangers - you’ve got a big responsibility. This season hasn’t gone how we wanted to go so it’s important to come back and change the outcome next year."
