Report: Rangers striker set for summer exit with club to reignite bid for less money

Rangers are set to get rid of Ibrox flop Eduardo Herrera in the summer, according to a report.

The Scottish Sun claims that the player, who was signed from Pumas in the summer for £1.5million by Pedro Caixinha, is now considered surplus to requirements.

The 29-year-old is below Alfredo Morelos and January signing Jason Cummings in the Ibrox pecking order and he hasn’t played in the Premiership in 2018.

He has only scored two goals in 24 appearances and now it looks like the Mexican striker could be heading home to Chivas, with the club set to make a move at the end of the season.

They wanted the striker two years ago but Pumas wanted too much money – now it looks like they could land their man for less.

Not all of Caixinha’s signings were disastrous. Alfredo Morelos, for one, has adapted to life in the Premiership in emphatic fashion. It hasn’t worked out for Herrera though and he’ll be departing at the end of the season. The only question that remains is how much of the £1.5million fee will the club be able to recoup? It won’t be the full amount they paid and they’ll struggle to get seven-figures. Perhaps a half-price settlement is the best that Rangers can expect.
