Report - Rangers hitman set for crunch talks with Ibrox future hanging by a thread

It’s fair to say that Eduardo Herrera hasn’t had quite the impact at Rangers that many hoped he would. 

The Mexican striker signed for the Gers from UNAM Pumas in his home country back in 2017, and has subsequently spent the majority of his time on various loan deals at various clubs in the Mexican league.

In that time he has managed just 24 appearances for his parent club, and has scored just twice in a Light Blue shirt.

And Football Insider report that his time at Ibrox could be coming to an end sooner than expected.

The 31-year-old has six months left on his current deal, but it is understood that the club are set to hold talks with him in an attempt to reach an agreement over terminating his contract early.

Herrera’s current loan spell with Mexican side Necaxa is due to finish at the end of this month, and it is believed that Steven Gerrard has made it very clear that the forward is not part of his plans going forward.

It’s hard to be too shocked by this one.

Herrera has the distinct feeling of a player who most Gers fans won’t even remember in a couple of seasons’ time, and if that’s how low his reputation is then he is always going to be fighting a losing battle.

The fact of the matter is that he hasn’t, at any point, shown enough quality to justify a spot in Gerrard’s plans.

His age doesn’t help him either, and with just two goals in 24 appearances, he’s had his chance and he’s blown it.
