Talks underway: Rangers in negotiations to seal agreement with Mexican club
By Harry Sykes
Rangers could be set for a link-up with Mexican giants Chivas after their chief executive flew to Scotland for talks with Pedro Caixinha.
The Ibrox manager is in line to use his contacts in the country to formalise a players arrangement after leading Santos Laguna to the Mexican title during his stint in the country.
Chivas chief executive Jose Luis Higuera was given a tour of Rangers’ training ground at Auchenhowie by Caixinha before the pair had dinner in Glasgow.
The Chivas chief shared his pictures of the meeting on his personal Twitter account and said: “I have started a great relationship with Rangers FC. I had a great dinner and learned a lot about football.”

The comments appear to suggest that Caixinha has set the ball rolling for a formal sharing of ideas and players between the two teams.

Club Deportivo Guadalajara, known as Chivas, have won their title 12 times and are known for only playing Mexican players.
Higuera is regarded as one of the most influential men in Mexican football. He is also CEO of Ominilife Chivas group, which owns the club.
Rangers signed two Mexicans this summer, with Carlos Pena arriving from Chivas and Eduardo Herrera also sealing a transfer.
