The two-time Champions League winner left Everton to join Saudi Arabian outfit Al-Rayyan SC in September last year.
The European success he has achieved suggests that he has the experience to help Olympiacos navigate their way through this year’s Europa League campaign.
After their first match in Group G ended in a 2-1 defeat to Nantes, they will be hoping that the addition of Rodriguez can help them turn their fortunes around.
