Anestis Argyriou: Snapped up by Ally McCoist as a free agent
Anestis Argyriou has become the latest signing at Rangers, with the Greek defender joining the first team set-up at Ibrox as a free agent.
The former U21 international has penned a two-year contract after impressing during a two-week trial.
He found himself without a club this summer after being released by AEK Athens.
Argyriou spent the last two seasons with the Greek giants, but found himself restricted to just 11 appearances.
He becomes the seventh summer arrival at Rangers, with the Old Firm outfit in the process of rebuilding after slipping into liquidation.
"Rangers have completed a deal for Greek defender Anestis Argyriou and the 24-year-old is set to go straight into the squad for tomorrow's game at Berwick," read a statement on the club's official website.
"He has done enough to convince Ally McCoist that he is worthy of a contract and he has successfully completed a medical and signed a two-year contract.
"International clearance has come through for Argyriou so he is free to be involved in the third league match of the season if McCoist wants him."
