New Men Ready To Play

Written by Andrew Dickson


ALL bar one of Rangers’ news signings have now been registered to play for the club with the SFA after the club’s transfer embargo came to an end on Saturday night.


Only Arnold Peralta has still to have his paperwork completed, although that is because the Light Blues are waiting on international clearance coming through.


When that arrives will be dictated by the National Autonomous Federation of Football of Honduras, whom the midfielder was most recently registered with.


The expectation is he will also become eligible in the next few days and certainly before next weekend’s home game with Arbroath at Ibrox.


Nicky Law, Jon Daly, Nicky Clark and Cammy Bell have all been able to turn out as trialists to some extent in recent weeks.


But because their registrations were last held by clubs outwith Scotland, Peralta, Stevie Smith, Richard Foster and Bilel Mohsni couldn’t feature competitively.


The latter three all played for the first time in a month on Tuesday as a Rangers side lost 3-1 in a closed-doors game to Hibernian.


That match was held for the new additions and some other players who have had injuries to get much-needed minutes behind them.


Peralta missed the game as he is currently on international duty with Honduras ahead of their World Cup qualifiers with Mexico and Panama.


As things stand, Ally McCoist should only be without injured trio Ross Perry, Kyle Hutton and Chris Hegarty.


All three remain sidelined with ankle injuries and Perry went through a procedure this week in order to accelerate his recovery.


Andy Little missed the 5-0 win over East Fife at the weekend with a knee problem but he should be fit enough to play after the international break is over.

For anyone interested, Arnold Peralta is almost certain to be playing against Mexico in Mexico City late tomorrow night (early hours of Saturday morning). The game is on at 02:30am GMT on 07/09/13 or in local time in Mexico it's on at 20:30pm tomorrow night (06/09/13).


He's then got another match on Tuesday night/Wed morning against Panama in Honduras. More details here - http://www.fifa.com/worldcup/preliminaries/nccamerica/matches/index.html
