Report: newly-signed trio registered in time for Euro clash


According to increasing speculation, the three previously unannounced Rangers, Carlos Pena, Eduardo Herrera and Alfredo Morelos have all secured European registration at Ibrox in time for the visit of Luxebourg’s Progres Niederkorn on the 29th of June for the first round of Rangers’ return to European competition for the first time in five years.

The deadline for registration was reportedly June 19, but with no announcement regarding any of the three incoming signings till this afternoon, fans assumed Rangers would be without their services for the opening of this season’s European adventure.

However it has been claimed that rather than just Fabio Cardoso, Ryan Jack, Daniel Candieas and Dalcio being at Pedro Caixinha’s disposal for the first round, Morelos, Pena and Herrera are set to join them.

There had been confusion over why none of the three had been confirmed publicly yet by the club, despite photos from the Rangers Training Centre confirming at least Morelos has joined, but nevertheless bar aforementioned announcement, it seems the trio are not only Rangers players now, but were secured with paperwork submitted in time for the opening Euro fixture. And with Morelos announced this afternoon, it seems only a matter of time before the others follow.

Time will tell if these claims are corroborated but we certainly hope so.

Incidentally, Bruno Alves is unlikely to be available for said match due to his international duties with Portugal at the Confederations’ Cup – Portugal could end up going home early, but with the knock out stage starting on the 28th and Portugal’s final fixture in the group stage being the 24th, it is cutting it thin.


  1. I haven't seen anything of the 2 Mexicans getting granted permits, no where apart from here has stated that this is the case, not that I'm doubting they will get the go ahead but I always take a pinch of salt unless more than 3 sites say the same story.

  2. The Mexicans seem to be taking forever to be granted their permits strange as moroles was signed about a week later and he has got his permit before the 2 Mexican lads

  3. Apparently the Mexicans are actually just waiting to getting their passports back so that they can return to Scotland. Supposedly both are completed, just not had their photo taken to be announced at Ibrox.

  4. Does that mean that they aren't registered for Europe then as the deadline was supposed to be last night, unless it is a matter of getting their passports to come back here and they are already did the paper work to play in Europe so Uefa can allow it

  5. I just hope with all the new Strikers we have i just hope one can better KM and if any can do that then we have a gem KM is man to beat.
