Manager warns Rangers duo they will miss out if form doesn't improve - report
By John Reid
The Rangers pair of Carlos Pena and Eduardo Herrera are in danger of missing the Mexico squad for the World Cup next year, according to a report.
The Daily Record claims that Mexico national team boss Juan Carlos Osorio wants to see the duo get more playing time in the Rangers first team, or they could well miss out on a trip to Russia next year.
The players have missed out of Mexico’s friendlies against Belgium and Poland due to a lack of game time.
Osorio said, “I follow all Mexicans abroad who can be a part of the national team and that includes Pena and Herrera at Rangers.
“I believe as long as they can be influential at their club, they have a high chance of being in the squad.”

The pair haven’t featured much since the departure of their countryman Pedro Caixinha from the Ibrox hotseat.
Pena has scored four goals for Rangers in eight games so far but his form has been inconsistent and he hasn’t been able to keep a regular place in the first team.
Herrara has only scored two goals in nine games so far, and the future of both players seems up in the air as Rangers continue their search for a new manager.
