South American Rangers kid Juan Alegria was training with the Ibrox first-team during the week but it was with the B side that he had his biggest impact for the club.

The Colombian striker, 19, joined the club after a high-profile 18 month + pursuit and takes a path well-travelled via Finland to join the Gers.

Alfredo Morelos is the Ibrox club’s resident Colombian striker and joined Rangers from HJK Helsinki whilst Alegria joined the Gers from FC Honka in the summer.

But as Alfie reaches 100 goals for the Ibrox side, Alegria is showing for the young Gers that he could well be the next South American superstar at Ibrox.

After training alongside the first team in the week, Alegria started for Rangers in a 3-1 win over the Caledonian Braves.

That was his second goal for the B side and Rangers fans will be eager to see what the Colombian forward can bring to the side over his time at Ibrox.

Rangers were said to have tailed the player for over a year and a half before making the move and now the onus is on Juan to make the grade in Glasgow

Interestingly, South American Alegria has swapped life in the Finnish top flight for a move to Rangers B despite the fact the striker has scored goals at a competitive level.

Alegria made 24 appearances for the FC Honka first team and scored three goals, including a double in a 4-1 demolition of Veikkausliiga rival Ilves in August.

Speaking of South American strikers, Rangers fans are proud of star man Alfredo Morelos after he reached a special milestone in an Ibrox jersey.
