BBC Scotland journalist Tam Cowan claims that Rangers’ week couldn’t have gone any better.
Club legend Jimmy Nicholl has been confirmed as assistant manager and one of Pedro Caixinha’s big-money high-profile flops Carlos Pena has been loaned out to their former manager’s new club.
Pena caused a stir on his way to his medical when he seemingly wiped his nose on his Rangers’ shorts in front of journalists.
The resulting picture was the subject of widespread condemnation from Rangers fans who are glad to see him go.
Cowan claimed it was the “first time they’ll [Rangers fans] have seen any part of the big man running.”
Cowan continued to mock Pena in his column in the Scottish Sun.
“After agreeing a 12-month loan deal, Pena insisted he had been a “success” in Scotland. What else has he been sniffing — superglue?
“To be fair, I believe he’s already been shortlisted as Player of the Year by at least half a dozen Celtic Supporters’ Clubs.
“Now he’s in Mexico, hands up the Rangers fans desperate for Donald Trump to build that wall so he can’t get back out.”
Pena joined Cruz Azul on a year-long loan and it appears extremely unlikely that he will play for the club again after his recent antics.
He cost Rangers £2.7m under former manager Pedro Caixinha, who is now manager at Cruz Azul.
In other Rangers news, the club is set to offer a lucrative contract to in-demand attacker after bids tabled.
