Bluebirds swoop for Burke

09 January 2009 10:58
Cardiff City have completed the signing of Chris Burke on a free transfer from Rangers. Burke, who has two international caps for Scotland, moves to Ninian Park after recently being blighted by injury and illness. The 25-year-old winger figured for the Old Firm club at the weekend against Inverness, but has opted to swap life at Ibrox for a promotion chase in the Welsh capital. Burke has picked up both Rangers' young player of the year and player of the year awards in his time at the club, but has made just two substitute appearances this season for the Gers. Burke is seen as a direct replacement for Wayne Routledge, who joined Queens Park Rangers last week after his loan period with Dave Jones' team.
