Eduardo Herrara had enjoyed an excellent start to life on loan at Mexican side Club Necaxa from Rangers, but that joy was subsided after the Mexican suffered an injury.
The nine-time Mexico international was sidelined with a muscular injury since early February. He had scored three goals and laid on one assist in his first seven matches for Necaxa.
It will have been hugely frustrating for the striker, who has endured a difficult couple of seasons. He has struggled since Pedro Caixinha brought him to Ibrox in the summer of 2017.
However, 30-year-old Herrera is now back in action after posting on Instagram that he had overcome injury. He even managed 20 minutes of Necaxa’s 2-1 win over Santos Laguna over the weekend.
Herrera managed just two goals in 24 appearances for Rangers. Ibrox supporters are keen to see the back of him, especially considering he cost plenty of money – £1.5million according to the Daily Record.
However, if he continues his excellent form for Necaxa, surely Gerrard should perhaps consider a surprise move in giving him a second chance at Ibrox?
Indeed, Herrera has plenty of calibre and the majority of his 24 outings were from the bench. He would give a different option to Gerrard in comparison with Alfredo Morelos and Jermain Defoe. Worth keeping an eye on.
