No stranger to top level domestic football, Alex has plied his trade with Greek giants Panathinaikos, German Bundesliga side Werder Bremen and French outfit Monaco, among others.

He’s also featured in the Champions League and Europa League, and could be involved in the squad for Wednesday night’s Ladbrokes Premiership game at home to Rangers.
