COMMENT By Richard Parks
With a bid for Eduardo Herrera reportedly incoming, Rangers must seize the chance to rid the club of one of the last of Pedro Caixinha’s horror signings.
The Daily Record claim that Mexican top-flight side Chivas are ready to make a formal move for the striker, 29, as they attempt to take him back to his homeland.
Herrera was signed by ex-manager Caixinha for £1.5million last summer when the Light Blues paid the price for putting their faith in the transfer market in the hands of someone patently unqualified to spearhead such a significant overhaul of a major club.
Most of the Portugese’s captures have flopped, and Herrera sums up the ineptitude.
He has stank out the Scottish Premiership with his 24 appearances, most of which have demonstrated that he is ill equipped for such a demanding league.
Indeed, Graeme Murty has no faith in the nine-times Mexico international and has not given him a single minute of league action since the turn of the year.
He will surely leave in the forthcoming window, and it is inevitable that Rangers will take a major financial hit in order to get him off their wage bill.
Caixinha’s legacy remains, and it is a deeply unimpressive one.
In other Rangers news, the club’s board “have been on their knees begging” 70-yr-old to take over as manager.
