'Game time would be limited' - Gerrard informs duo their Rangers career is over
Rangers manager Steven Gerrard has informed the duo of Eduardo Herrera and Fabio Cardoso that they are free to find new clubs.
The Gers boss revealed that the pair could not be guaranteed game time and they have no future at Ibrox.
Gerrard made the announcement as reported by the Daily Record live transfer blog on Wednesday morning (08:26).
“I have had a conversation with both of them before we came and I told them that their game time would be very limited” the man in the Ibrox hot seat said.
The pair were signed by former Gers boss Pedro Caixinha last summer but have rarely featured for the Ibrox side, with Herrera making only 24 appearances and Cardoso making just 18 appearances.

Steven Gerrard seems to be slowly moulding his own team at Rangers, and that looks to include getting rid of players who were signed by the previous regime at Ibrox. It is highly unlikely that Fabio Cardoso and Edouard Herrera were going to feature often under Gerrard, so it makes sense that the club are set to move them on. For too long the Gers have been stuck with players who have no prospect of playing for the first-team on their books, and they are better off getting the players off the wage bill. You never know, the money the Gers could save on these players could bring in some new signings or perhaps keep an important player at the club tied down on a new contract. Gers fans will no doubt back the action taken by Gerrard and Mark Allen though, as they look to continue their Ibrox revolution at what seems to be a very fast pace.
