Northampton Town confirmed the signing of Glasgow Rangers midfielder Matt Crooks for an undisclosed fee in July 2017.
The 6ft 4in midfielder began his career with Huddersfield Town before joining Accrington Stanley in February 2015 where his outstanding form attracted the interest of a number of clubs, and he signed a pre contract agreement with Glasgow Rangers in January 2016 and moved to Ibrox the following summer. He returned to England by joining Scunthorpe United on loan in the January 2017 transfer window, and Crooks scored three goals in twelve appearances for the Irons as he helped them reach the 2016/17 League 1 play offs. Crooks attracted a host of interest but the Cobblers won the race to sign a highly sought after player.
