Back in the summer of 2017, alongside Carlos Pena, Rangers also brought in Eduardo Herrera from Mexico as the club looked to bolster their forwards options for the 2017/18 SPL season.
Herrera had previously worked under the then Rangers manager Pedro Caixinha at Santos Laguna, which was clearly a significant factor in the striker’s welcomed transfer to Ibrox.

Standing at 6ft 2in, Herrera arrived in Glasgow to give Rangers an overall focal point up front as well as goals with the 30-year-old saying as much upon his official unveiling.
“I will bring a lot of work and a lot of sacrifice and hopefully a lot of goals,” Herrera told Rangers’ official club website.
“I am a centre-forward and I like to be in the opposition box looking for a chance to score. I am used to playing as a target man, to have the ball and support my team and other players in those types of situations.”
Unfortunately for Herrera, though, he was unable to show much of that with the Mexico international managing to find the back of the net on just one occasion in the 19 SPL appearances he made for the club that season.
Since then, Herrera has gone on to rejoin Santos Laguna on loan in a move that all but confirms the end of his Rangers career. Considering all of that, the former Pumas man will undoubtedly go down as one of Caixinha’s many flop signings at Ibrox.
