Friendly win proves Rangers still must offload lacklustre summer signing before it's too late
Rangers striker Eduardo Herrera has struggled to make any real impact since his summer move from UNAM Pumas and the Light Blues must offload the Mexican before it’s too late to find a replacement
Herrera has been restricted to short substitute appearances for most of the season as Alfredo Morelos continues his prolific goal-scoring form.
Like compatriot Carlos Pena, Herrera has taken a while to acclimatise to Scotland and adjust to the differences between the game here and how it is played in Mexico.
The Mexican international was given 45 minutes in the friendly win against Atletico Mineiro and, while he tried to get involved as much as possible, little really came off for the lacklustre summer signing.
He did set up Josh Windass’ only goal of the game with a clever lay off but that was as good as it got for Herrera.
Given time, he might well come good for Rangers but, in the short-term at least, the Ibrox giants need someone a bit more reliable to provide competition for Morelos in attack.
While a title challenge is probably beyond the Ibrox side, there’s still the Scottish Cup and second in the Scottish Premiership to secure before the end of the season and should anything happen to Morelos, the Gers will find themselves in a very difficult position.
