Rangers will struggle to recoup £1.5m fee for Eduardo Herrera

Steven Gerrard got rid of the Rangers flop this summer, who was brought to Ibrox by Pedro Caixinha.

It would be fair to say that many of the players brought into Rangers by former boss Pedro Caixinha failed to live up to the necessary standard.

The Portuguese signed plenty of players from his time in his homeland and in Mexican football. Despite a few successes, mostly they flopped.

One such player who struggled in Glasgow was Eduardo Herrera. His time at Ibrox was certainly forgettable for Rangers fans.

Herrera managed just two goals in 24 games for the club and the striker was swiftly turfed out in the summer.

The 30-year-old returned to Mexico, joining Santos Laguna on a loan deal.

However, times have not improved. Herrera has failed to score in nine games for the Liga MX club and has now been dropped from the club’s first-team squad in recent weeks.

Rangers fans won’t be surprised. However, the problem here is that the Glasgow club will struggle to recoup a fee for the player.

As reported by the Scottish Sun, Rangers spent £1.5 million to bring the striker to Ibrox last summer.

With Herrera goal-shy and 30-years-old, finding someone to pay that amount looks unlikely, leaving new manager Steven Gerrard, ultimately, out of pocket.

Considering he is also contracted until 2020, it appears Herrera might be a continued thorn in Rangers’ side for the next few seasons.
