Falkirk misspell the name of Rangers striker Juan Alegria in a farewell message as the young Colombian striker returns to Ibrox following a six-month loan stint with the Bairns.

The 20-year-old South American striker joined the League One side in the summer and has gone on to make 18 appearances and score six goals for the League One club.

But despite the fact that the loan move has proven initially successful, Juan Alegria will return to Rangers with Falkirk thanking the kid for his input during the loan spell.

However, cheeky fans were quick to point out the social media gaffe where the Falkirk admin has spelled the ex-FC Honka star’s name as “Juan Algeria”. We’ll put it down to autocorrect.

“The Club can confirm Rangers FC have recalled Juan Algeria from his loan spell and he will return to his parent club,” reads the tweet.

“We wish to thank Juan for the positive contribution he made while at The Bairns.

“All the best for the future Juan!”

Rangers too have taken to social media to announce the player’s imminent return with attention now focusing on what happens next with Juan Alegria at the club.

Juan Alegria returns to Rangers

Rangers signed former Colombian youth international Juan Alegria in the August of 2021 following a drawn out pursuit from Finnish side FC Honka.

The road from Colombia to Finland to Ibrox has been travelled before and at the time of the striker’s signing there were high hopes about what the player could bring to the team.

However over the last two seasons Juan Alegria has struggled to make his mark at Rangers with loan moves to Partick Thistle and Falkirk following.

With a few players now ahead of him in the pecking order, see Robbie Ure and Zak Lovelace, what happens next with Juan Alegria could be defining in his Rangers career.

Meanwhile, Rangers are now ‘expected’ to complete their first signing of the Michael Beale era.
