The former Kilmarnock attacking midfielder, who was a free agent, has signed a four-year deal.
Shiels is the second new recruit since Rangers were consigned to liquidation in June, following the capture of Ian Black at the weekend.
Over the moon: Dean Shiels is delighted to have signed for Rangers
Boss Ally McCoist faces a race against time to assemble a squad before a 12-month transfer embargo comes into effect on September 1.
Top-flight clubs voted against allowing Rangers entry into the Clydesdale Bank Premier League and they will play in the Irn-Bru Third Division this season.
But, despite Rangers dropping down the divisions, Shiels says he has signed for what he still regards as a massive club.
He said: 'I'm over the moon to be here. First and foremost, I wanted to sign for Rangers. No matter what league they are in, it's a massive club.
'I can't wait to get started. I'm delighted to be here, it's one of the biggest clubs in the world.'
The Northern Ireland international has no qualms about playing in the Scottish Football League's bottom division.
He added: 'It doesn't concern me, no. I see it as a challenge, as a personal challenge, to try to do my bit to get this club back to where it belongs, back to top-flight football.'
