Give him the Ballon D'Or - Rangers fans rave about one player in particular after win v St Johnstone
By James Black
Rangers won 3-0 against St. Johnstone in the Scottish Premiership after Carlos Pena’s double and a goal from Graham Dorrans – and fans might finally be getting won over by the Mexican.
Pena had his best performance yet since joining the Gers and took his double really well.
The 27-year-old’s movement was fantastic as Caixinha’s side impressed against the Saints.
Pena was replaced late on by Ross McCrorie to a standing ovation from the Rangers support and the fans online gave him a similar reception.

Pena has now scored five times in eight appearances since his summer move from Chivas Guadalajara.
The midfielder has taken some time to accustomise to the Scottish game but is looking more and more like the player Rangers fans were promised when he signed.
Both goals were impressive as the midfielder burst into the Saints box and finished well.
The 27-year-old is quickly becoming a key player for the Ges after his slow start and fans seem to be delighted ahead of next weekend’s League Cup semi-final with Motherwell.
In other Rangers news, a £7.5million midfielder is firmly in the running to be the club’s next signing.
