Does Eduardo Herrera deserve chance under Rangers' Steven Gerrard?

Eduardo Herrera is set to return to Ibrox side Glasgow Rangers next month.

If rumours are to be believed, Rangers' Director of Football Mark Allen is planning to offload Eduardo Herrera.

According to The Record, Allen wants to offload the on-loan Rangers striker 'as soon as he can' ahead of his return from Santos Laguna next month.

The Mexican, a £1.5 million signing in 2017 under Pedro Caixinha, is a big earner in Glasgow and although moving him on makes sense, should the Gers wait to see if Steven Gerrard can get a tune out of him?

 

At the moment, the 30-year-old is undeniably a flop, having scored once in 19 Premiership games last season, but he still has nine caps for Mexico and therefore can't be a terrible player.

According to The Daily Express, Rangers could send loanee Umar Sadiq back to Roma in January, which makes space for someone else to compete with Alfredo Morelos and Kyle Lafferty during the second half of the season.

Granted, Herrera might not be that man, but Gerrard is a good man-manager and it seems silly to dump an international striker before he's even had a chance to prove himself under the new regime.

Herrera never got going under Caixinha, but who did? The former UNAM star will hopefully return to Ibrox with a point to prove and, like a number of Rangers men, he could be reborn under Gerrard.
