Writing on the wall as Rangers star faces being frozen out with mainstay's return
Rangers striker Eduardo Herrera could well find himself frozen out of the Gers squad after the return of Kenny Miller for Tuesday night’s Scottish Premiership clash with Partick Thistle.
Miller has been out of action since rupturing his hamstring in November’s 2-1 win over Hibs and is set to return to the matchday squad for the trip to Firhill.
The veteran was a mainstay under Murty prior to his injury after being frozen out completely by Pedro Caixinha and forced to play with the Under-20’s.
Herrera has struggled to make any impact since arriving from UNAM Pumas in the summer and is likely to find his usual place among the substitutes taken by Miller when Graeme Murty’s side take on the Jags.
With Jason Cummings also arriving at Ibrox in January it pushes Herrera further down the pecking order with the Mexican now – at best – fourth choice behind Alfredo Morelos, Cummings and Miller.
After a disappointing start to his Ibrox career for Hererra it looks as though the writing might be on the wall for him in Scotland.
The 29-year-old has been the most used substitute in the Scottish Premiership so far this season but hasn’t shown much which has given much cause to think he has any long-term future after the arrival of Cummings last month.
After Carlos Pena’s hasty return to Mexico, Herrera now looks as if he might be quickly following suit.
In other Rangers news, it can be revealed that a key first teamer has sensationally asked to leave after the board failed to stick to their promise of giving him a new deal during the transfer window.
