Rangers FC

Rozental became Rangers' first South American player when he signed for £4m in January 1997. He arrived at Rangers as a promising young talent, as he had broken into the Chile national team and was challenging Marcelo Salas and Iván Zamorano for a starting job, following a great scoring record at his club. However injury struck in his home debut for Rangers versus St. Johnstone F.C.: he started the game well and scored his first Rangers goal, but was then taken off following a knee injury which would ruin his Ibrox career, as after a year out he never reclaimed the form or promise shown before his injury. He made 17 appearances for Rangers and scored 3 goals.

To MLS via Puerto Rico

He was signed by the Columbus Crew on January 13, 2006. His first goal as a Crew member came on a penalty kick on April 15 against the Chicago Fire. He played 20 games and scored 3 goals total during the 2006 season.

Move to Israel

After spending one season with the Columbus Crew, Rozental left for Israelmarker where he was granted Israelimarker citizenship (via the Law of return) and signed with Maccabi Petah Tikva. After failing to impress in one half season in Petah Tikva, Rozental signed a one year contract with Maccabi Netanya.
