Carlos jets in for Rangers By ROBERT GRIEVE
CARLOS BOCANEGRA signed for Rangers last night - 45 MINUTES before the Euro deadline.
Now boss Ally McCoist hopes to get international clearance to play the USA World Cup star against Maribor tonight.
Gers swooped to land the St Etienne defender in a £300,000 deal with Bocanegra, 32, signing a three-year contract.
McCoist also landed his USA international team-mate Alejandro Bedoya yesterday.
But it was the capture of Bocanegra that handed McCoist a crucial boost ahead of tonight's Europa League play-off in Slovenia.
After a day of tense negotiations with the French outfit McCoist was given the news late on that the deal had gone through.
Gers now need to get paperwork in place before they are able to play the ex-Fulham ace tonight.
But Bocanegra will jet out to Slovenia this morning to join the squad.
The deal was done before last night's 11pm deadline, with McCoist desperate to pitch him in against Maribor.
Bedoya also penned a three-year deal but won't feature in tonight's clash in Slovenia.
The USA international winger clinched a £300,000 move and is in line to make his debut at Motherwell on Sunday.
Bedoya said: "The waiting is over and I'm so excited and thankful for this opportunity. I can't wait to join Rangers."
McCoist said: "We're absolutely thrilled to get Alejandro in at last.
"We've wanted to get a few players in and he is one of them.
"I have no doubt he will be a great asset to us and he is someone we have been looking at for a while.
"I'm just so pleased the clubs agreed terms and we can get him to join the squad now.
"That will happen as soon as possible. He has got to go to Stockholm to get his visa and he's as keen to join up with us as we are to have him here.
"Hopefully we can get everything done so he can get his Rangers career underway."
Bedoya, who had agreed a pre-contract to leave Swedish outfit Orebro for Ibrox in January, has penned a three-year deal.
He'll link up with international team-mates Mo Edu and fellow new signing Bocanegra in Glasgow.
