The former Obrebro midfielder completed his move to Ibrox this week.
Bedoya told ussoccer.com: “I spoke to Mo (Maurice Edu) the most. The interest from Rangers had been going on for a while, and Mo and I would correspond through text messages. I would ask a lot of questions. I talked to Beas (DaMarcus Beasley) a little bit, and through my agent I was able to speak with Claudio Reyna.
"Obviously he is a well-respected player and someone I looked up to, and he was a key player for Rangers. He had nothing but positive things to say. If I can be half of what Claudio was at Rangers, it will be a success."
Bedoya has been joined at Rangers by USA teammate Carlos Bocanegra.
“Talk about craziness! You hear rumors, and I remember when Carlos signed I was on the computer and saw the news. I congratulated him, and I spoke with Mo about it. Having three Americans there will make the transition easier. Carlos is the captain of the national team and is a leader, and there’s still a lot to learn from him. Hopefully this will be good for the club as well.”
