Ahead of the Indian Super League (ISL) season, Jamshedpur FC on Sunday completed the signing of Scotland's Greg Stewart, who was out of contract after a two-year spell with Rangers.

The attacking midfielder made five appearances for Rangers last season as it went unbeaten on its way to win the Scottish top division.

"I am so excited to see what this season has in store for us. It's a new adventure for me and one I am really looking forward to. It's going to be an amazing experience to work under Owen Coyle and give everything on the pitch to get silverware for Jamshedpur. Just can't wait to get started," Stewart said in a statement.
