The Scottish Premiership champions acquired the services of 19-year-old forward Alegria from Finnish outfit Honka for a six-figure fee in the summer transfer window.


Alegria, who was sidelined with an injury recently, made his first start since returning to action against Caledonian Braves last weekend and marked the occasion by finding the back of the net.



Rangers B team assistant coach Gilmour has expressed his delight at having the Colombian back with the squad and insisted that he is getting fitter and stronger.


Gilmour admitted that Alegria still looks off the pace having just returned from an injury, but feels it is evident that the striker is learning more and more about the team.



It is always a positive when we get players back into the group, nobody wants to be out for a period of time“, Gilmour told Rangers TV.


Juan has had a tough time in terms of the injury, but he is getting fitter, he is getting stronger.



He is getting to learn more and more about his team-mates and us on a daily basis, you can see that.


There were times that we touched on his play on Saturday, still looks a little bit off the speed, but that will come through time, through his training, through his games.


But, overall we are pleased to have him back in the group.


Having found the back of the net in his first start for the side after returning from an injury, Alegria will now be looking to build on the momentum.
