Rangers manager Walter Smith signed Negri from Perugia for £3.5 million in 1997. He was rewarded with instant success, as Negri scored 23 goals in his first ten league games, including all five goals in a 5–1 win over Dundee United in the second league game of the season on 23 August 1997 at Ibrox Stadium, as well as his side's only goal in a 1–1 draw against rivals Celtic at Celtic Park. His low-key celebrations were noteworthy – often he felt the need only to exchange a handshake with other players and showed little exuberance.
Negri easily topped the goalscoring charts in that first campaign, with 32 league goals. His scoring run was brought to an end on suffering a serious eye injury to his retina, attributed to a squash match with teammate Sergio Porrini. Back training after his eye injury, Negri suffered from further injuries. Following his return to action, he only scored twice and won two of his next 10 league games with the side, as Celtic prevented Rangers from winning a tenth consecutive league title.
