Rangers midfielder deal could be terminated after imminent board meeting - confirmed
Rangers flop Carlos Pena could be on his way back to Ibrox as soon as next week, Cruz Azul’s president has confirmed.
The Mexican was signed on a year-long loan after failing to make an impact at Rangers.
But, if anything, he’s been worse at his new club, after suffering an ankle injury and getting booed by his own fans when he has played.
His immediate future is in doubt after he was spotted buying a six-pack of beer in his training gear.
Now, as quoted in the Scottish Sun, club president Guillermo Alvarez, has said his future will be decided imminently in a board meeting:
“Carlos Pena’s future at this club will be decided in the coming days.

“We will look at all options concerning the player, including his contract situation.”
Rangers paid Guadalajara £2.7million for the striker in the summer and are still paying a large chunk of his wages.
He’s contracted at Ibrox until 2020.
Football Insider verdict:
Pedro Caixinha still haunts Ibrox and this is one of his most high-profile flops. He signed him at his new club as well where he’s been an even bigger flop, which makes you question just what Caixinha is thinking. Murty might be the latest Rangers man to be getting fan criticism, but if it was a straight choice between the two then fans would have Murty any day. If they do replace Murty in the summer, the Rangers board must make sure they don’t make anywhere near the same mistake again. In the meantime, they might have an unwelcome player at Ibrox within days.
