Eduardo Herrera will probably go down as one of the most disappointing signings in Rangers’ recent history.
The Mexican international striker moved to Ibrox from Pumas UNAM in the summer of 2017 for a fee of £1.5 million, but his time in Scotland is best described as forgettable. Herrera repaid his £20,000 a week wages with just two goals in 24 games, according to the Daily Record, and it was little surprise when he was farmed out on loan to Santos Laguna.
But the 29-year-old has continued to find goals hard to come by since returning to his homeland.
Herrera has failed to score in nine games in all competitions for Santos and has now been left out of their match-day squad for the last four games. According to Transfermarkt, he is not even injured.
While Rangers fans might be breathing a sigh of relief, safe in the knowledge that letting Herrera go was the right decision, it is worth remembering that the nine-time international is only on loan at Santos Laguna.
He will need to find form soon if Rangers are to recoup any of that £1.5 million investment.
