Rangers

By Aramide Oladipo

Rangers summer signing Bruno Alves has revealed that former Real Madrid star Pepe would enjoy playing his football in Scotland.

Pepe, 34, is currently plying his trade with Turkish giants Besiktas after leaving the Bernabeu during the summer transfer window for a free transfer.

The central defender has already notched up his first goal for the club but they find themselves eight points behind current table toppers Galatasaray.

Pepe enjoyed a successful ten-year spell in the Spanish capital, lifting the La Liga title on three separate occasions and winning the Champions League three times with Madrid.

Speaking to the Scottish Sun, Alves made the astonishing revelation that his fellow Portuguese compatriot could potentially feature in Scottish football before he hangs up his boots.

“Pepe also played against Rangers before when we were in the same team,” he said.

“Pepe is like ‘my style is also liking confrontations’.

“Maybe it’s a place one day he can come to play because he will be pleased.

“I don’t know if it’s possible because he’s now playing for Besiktas in Turkey but football is so small. Everything can happen.”

Pepe was a Porto player when he faced the SPL side in the 2005 Champions League campaign where Rangers came away with four points.

Both veteran defenders played a crucial role in helping the Portugal national team secure their first ever major trophy in last year’s European Championships in France.

Alves, 35, has already become an essential part of the Rangers first-team squad after signing a permanent deal this summer.

The centre-back has helped the team achieve three clean sheets this season and he scored his first and only goal for the club in the 6-0 League Cup win against Dunfermline in August.
