Partick Thistle: Gabriel Rojo de la Vega Piccolo signs
Mexican defender Gabriel Rojo de la Vega Piccolo has joined Partick Thistle on a two-year deal.
The 23-year-old played for Spanish side Rayo Vallecano's B side last season.
"I must admit that Glasgow is a lovely city and what pleased me is that the rest of the boys made me feel very welcome," Piccolo said.
"I am very grateful for getting the opportunity to play here and I think it will be a good deal for both club and myself."
Piccolo began his career at Mexican team Club America but did not feature for their first-team.
He does not require a work permit as he holds an Italian passport.
Thistle manager Alan Archibald liked what he saw after Piccolo played for the Jags in friendlies against Cowdenbeath and AEL Limassol.
Archibald said: "I have now had the opportunity to see him play against a very high level of opposition and he looked very strong and aggressive and that is something that I am delighted to add to the squad."
