Mexican outlet Futbol RF claim Rangers midfielder Carlos Pena is set to leave Ibrox on loan once again, by joining second-tier Polish outfit GKS Tychy until the end of the season.

The Polish transfer window is slightly different to much of Europe, with the window opening on February 1 and closing at the end of the month. It allows Tychy to bring in players over the next four weeks.

Pena returned to Rangers in December after a loan spell at Mexican side Club Necaxa failed to bring the best out of the 19-time Mexico international. He played for Cruz Azul before that, where he also failed under Pedro Caixinha.

 

First signed by Caixinha in the summer of 2017 for £2million (Record) - and earning a whopping £20,000 a week (Record) - Pena instantly gained flop status after managing just 14 appearances before joining Cruz Azul on loan. 

He spent the second half of the 2017-18 campaign there and the first half of this season at Necaxa, clocking up 19 appearances across both loan spells. He also checked into rehab to fight a drinking problem, and went AWOL.

Now, back on Rangers books and looking for a new move, it appears that Pena is to make a surprise move to Poland where he will not even be playing in the top flight. Tychy currently sit in 11th place out of 18.

Pena has a contract at Ibrox until the summer of 2020, after agreeing a three-year deal in the summer of 2017.
