Nigeria Professional Football League giants Rangers have completed the signing of experienced goalkeeper Adeniyi Bamidele from MFM FC.

Bamidele penned a two-year deal with the club after successful negotiations.

The 29-year-old spent last season at MFM where he made 19 appearances and kept seven cleansheets.

He is expected to compete with Nana Bonsu, Femi Thomas and Mutawakilu Seidu for the number one shirt at Rangers.

Bamidele Adeniyi was one of the best goalkeepers in the Nigerian topflight last term.

His major strengths are diving and quick reflexes. He can rapidly adjust to deflections and short-range shots, and in particular, excels at stopping well-struck penalties.

The keeper oftentimes attempts to claim crosses very well and shows dominance in the air when called upon. In terms of command of area, Bamidele is quite competent. He is pretty vocal, enough to alert his defenders to danger and organise them accordingly. He rules his box often and makes sure that all the pieces are in place.

He lists 36 Lion, Crown FC and Wikki Tourists as his former clubs.
