Rangers fans react as Gerrard continues his rebuild by loaning out Herrera

Rangers forward Eduardo Herrera has returned to Mexico with a season long loan to Santos Laguna.

The 29-year-old only moved to the Ibrox last summer for a reported fee of £1.5million but failed to make much of an impression for the Gers.

The striker only managed to score two goals in 24 matches and his last appearance came via the substitutes’ bench in a Scottish Cup game against Ayr United in February.

The 6ft 2in Mexico international signed a three-year deal at Rangers and is now valued at £810,000 on Transfermarkt.

Herrera is the latest victim of Steven Gerrard’s huge squad rebuild which has seen nine players arrive at the club and 11 players exit the Ibrox this summer.

Rangers fans have been reacting on social media to the news that Eduardo Herrera has departed for the coming season, with many delighted that another Pedro Caixinha signing is being moved on by Gerrard.
