Andrius Velička - Club Career - Rangers

Rangers

On 14 June Viking accepted a bid believed to be around £1 million from Glasgow side Rangers for Velička. They received permission to hold signing talks with a view to agreeing personal terms over a move. He signed a three year contract on 16 June and became a Rangers player on 14 July on their tour of Germany a day after he finished the Norwegian spring part season with Viking FK.

Velička made his debut for the club in a UEFA Champions League qualifier on 30 July 2008 against his old team FBK Kaunas. He came on as a substitute in the second leg, and after missing an easy chance, Kaunas scored to knock Rangers out. Velička had a better time when he played his first league game for the club, scoring the winning goal in a 1–0 win over Falkirk. Despite the goal and a start the following week against former club Hearts, Velička fell out of favour at Ibrox and did not make another first team appearance until an away league match at Falkirk in April 2008. His next start came the following weekend, against Motherwell and he opened the scoring in the first two minutes of the match. He scored again the following week against Hibernian at Easter Road in a 3–2 win for the Gers, and bagged his third in three games with a fine finish against St Mirren in the Scottish Cup. He then scored another against former club Hearts, a fine finish inside the box, to make it four goals in four starts.
