Rangers defender Kirk Broadfoot has joined Blackpool on a short-term deal.

The 28-year old centre-half has signed a deal that will keep him at Bloomfield Road until the end of the season and is looking forward to linking up with Seasiders boss Ian Holloway.

"Speaking with the manager, I was just blown away with him and his style of football," he told the club's official website.

"People couldn't have spoken highly enough of the club so I think it was a good choice for me.

"I think it's got something special about it, Blackpool. It just seems to have this aura about it that everyone seems to enjoy themselves here and I wanted to be part of that."
