It seems to be all about togetherness at Rangers at the moment, as the club begin a new era under Steven Gerrard.

That means getting rid of players who have caused issues and have no real chance of being involved in the first team.

That is why the Gers will be delighted that Carlos Pena has left the club on loan.

The midfielder has returned to Mexico to join Club Necaxa, as confirmed on their official Twitter account.

There is little doubt that the Gers would have preferred that the 28-year-old left the club on a permanent deal, but for the moment they will be pleased that one potential distraction is off the books for a while at least.

Pena has struggled since moving to Glasgow under former Gers boss Pedro Caxinha for a fee of £2.2million.

He only made 14 appearances for the Gers last season before returning to Mexico to join Cruz Azul on loan, but that deal was cut short and he recently checked himself into rehab for alcohol issues, as reported by the Daily Record.

With those issues it remains to be seem how effective he will be for his new club in Mexico.

Ironically he did look quite good in his appearances for the Gers last season, and scored five goals, but it is probably best for all concerned that the Gers explore ways to end his time at the club on a permanent basis.
