New Swansea City signing Barrie McKay is looking to rebuild his career after joining the club from Nottingham Forest.

The former Rangers winger is hoping to recreate his goal scoring form at the Ibrox Stadium with his new club Swansea as they prepare for life in the Sky Bet Championship.

McKay has signed a three-year deal with the Swans after joining the club from Nottingham Forest for an undisclosed fee.

The winger found the back of the net 17 times for Rangers but struggled to replicate the same form at Forest scoring just five times in 28 appearances.

“Being at Rangers was a good feeling for me the football we played at the club was very good as we got the club back into the Scottish Premiership,” he said according to BBC.

McKay featured more than 100 times for the Glasgow based club and the highlight of his Rangers’ career came when he scored against great rivals Celtic in the Scottish cup semi-final.

“I was a young lad when I got into the club’s first team. I was just 17 but I featured in a number of games for the club,” he said.

“The goal I scored against Celtic was definitely one of my best and I hope to score a few more like that.”

“I will try to play as many games as I can and provide as many goals as I can as well for this club.”

McKay who has been capped once by Scotland could make his Swansea debut when the club face Sheffield United in the Sky bet Championship opener.
