He may have only made four league outings for Rangers, but Luca Gasparotto has recently been called up to represent Canada and was on the bench as his side drew with Scotland last night, which shocked a few Gers punters in the Transfer Tavern.
The 22-year-old departed Ibrox over the summer to sign for Falkirk after spending much of the past three seasons out on loan at various levels in Scottish football, and really has settled in well with the Bairns, who are on course to reach the play-offs in the Championship.

Gasparotto may well make his Canada debut against Belize before club football returns, and despite having said at the time it was a hard decision to leave Rangers (above), the defender has not revealed that the decision was not a tough one for him.
Speaking to the Scottish Sun, he said: “I left Rangers last summer and that wasn’t too hard to be honest. At my age, I just want to play and in all honesty it was going to be tough for me to make the breakthrough at Rangers.
“I played well last year on loan at Morton and when the opportunity to join Falkirk in the summer came up it was pretty much a no-brainer to make the move.
“They had a great season last year and are still a big club.
“It would be good to help the team get promotion in the same year that I win my first international cap.
Should Falkirk make the leap up to the top tier, there’s every chance Gasparotto will have the chance to get one over on his old side.
Letting Luca Gasparotto leave was a mistake on Rangers’ part – agree?
