Alejandro Bedoya is a big step closer to teaming with Maurice Edu at Rangers.

Bedoya was granted his work permit on Friday, giving the clearance for him to join the Scottish club. While Rangers and the U.S. international midfielder agreed on a pre-contract deal to bring him from Orebro in January, Rangers manager Ally McCoist wants to speed up the process now that the biggest hurdle has been cleared.

"In an ideal world for all parties we would like to get a deal done sooner rather than later," McCoist told Rangers' official website. "I will speak to (Rangers owner) Craig Whyte and see if we can do a deal with Orebro, and it would be ideal if we could have Bedoya registered for next week's Europa League match in Maribor."

What do you think of this development? Hope to see Bedoya join Rangers immediately?
