"I believe I can return to the level I was at that saw me play for my country. I am in a good physical state, I am emotionally in a good place too and with work and dedication, I know I can get back to where I was. I feel I have matured as a person.

"In Poland, I already have a contract offer from GKS Tychy in their second division, but I now have offers too from clubs in their top division."

Rangers paid £2.7 million to sign Pena from C.D. Guadalajara at the start of last season [Transfermarkt], but the 28-year-old only played 14 times for the Gers, scoring five goals, before returning to Mexico a year ago.

He was first loaned to Cruz Azul before Club Necaxa took over his registration last summer, although neither spell can be considered successful.
