Rangers 29-year-old has jetted overseas ahead of expected Ibrox exit - report

Rangers striker Eduardo Herrera is already in Mexico as Chivas Guadalajara consider making a move for the Ibrox flop, according to a report.

The Daily Record claim the Gers would be willing to leave for a “modest fee or on loan” after flopping following his move to Scotland last summer.

Herrera has two years left on his Ibrox contract but only scored twice in 24 appearances and hasn’t made an appearance since the Scottish Cup win over Ayr United in February.

Football Insider verdict:

Getting Herrera off the wage bill should be a priority for Mark Allen to free up more funds for Steven Gerrard to rebuild the squad this summer. The Mexican striker came to Ibrox with a good pedigree but simply hasn’t delivered following his £1.5million move from Pumas just last summer. The 29-year-old isn’t likely to still be at Ibrox when the season gets underway later in the year and Allen and Gerrard will be hoping a deal can get done sooner rather than later. Like Carlos Pena, Herrera has proven to be a costly flop brought to Ibrox from Liga MX by Pedro Caixina and the quicker it is brought to an end the better for everyone involved. Unlike Pena though, it doesn’t seem that the striker’s work-rate or commitment is to blame but it just hasn’t worked out for him in Scotland and it is time to call it quits.

In other Rangers transfer news, the club are in hot pursuit of a 6’4″ colossus who could be signing of the season.
