Biography


Walter del Rio had previously been on trial with the club under Jocky Scott, but had initially failed to impress the then management team at right back.

The defender began his career with Boca Juniors before moving to Hurcan in his native country. He had experience in the United Kingdom, having previously been on the books of Crystal Palace before he was signed by Ivano Bonetti in December 2000.

After initially playing at full- back, he was switched to central defence and in his final season at the club became a permanent fixture in that role.

He made a total of forty-nine appearances in his eighteen months at the club and was freed at the end of 2001-02, making his last appearance in the final match of that term at Motherwell.
