Playing at Ibrox during Dick Advocaat’s trophy-laden era, Claudio became a fan favourite amongst the Scottish club’s supporters for his committed and imaginative display in the middle of the park, and went on to win a league title and Scottish Cup during his two-year stint in Glasgow.
After that, Reyna opted for a crack at England with Sunderland and, in 2002, he and his wife had son Giovanni, who had grown-up to be a pretty decent player in his own right.
The 17-year-old was handed his senior debut for Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund in January and has gone on to play in eight consecutive matches, including Saturday’s 2-0 win over Werder Bremen.
