Rangers terminated Carlos Pena's contract earlier this month, and the midfielder isn't finding life as a free agent too easy.

The Gers paid considerable money to sign Pena from Chivas Guadalajara in the summer of 2017, with Pedro Caixinha confident that he would be a goalscoring maestro from midfield.

After all, Caixinha had seen Pena first hand in Mexico, and convinced Rangers to pay up for the Mexican international, in what proved to be a terrible deal.

 

Pena's record for Rangers wasn't actually disastrous in ratio terms, scoring five times in 14 games, but the fact that he only managed 14 games sums it all up.

The 28-year-old was effectively cast aside after Caixinha's sacking in October 2017, and after uneventful loans with Cruz Azul and Necaxa back in Mexico, he returned to Rangers in Janury.

Unsurprisingly, Rangers didn't want anything to do with him and terminated his contract earlier this month, but a move to Poland won't be materialising for the midfielder.

FOX Sports in Mexico report that GKS Tychy, a second division Polish club, have decided not to sign Pena even though he's now available for free after his exit from Rangers.

What Pena's next move will be remains to be seen, but if even if Polish second division sides are reluctant to take him, Rangers will feel confident they made the right decision in getting rid.
