Alves joined Rangers in the summer of 2017 and was expected to be a huge signing for the Glasgow giants.

However, the Portuguese centre-back has struggled with injury concerns, and his performances when he has featured have not been great.

That said, there is no doubt that Alves is a quality footballer who adds experience and a winning mentality to the current Rangers team.

Alves can be an important player for Rangers in their quest to finish second in the Scottish Premiership this season.
