Rangers have released Carlos Pena, the club has confirmed via Rangers.co.uk.
The Scottish giants announced on Tuesday that they have parted ways with the midfielder, who has struggled for minutes at Ibrox since joining the club in 2017.
Pena has made a total of 14 appearances for the Scottish club and has been on loan with Cruz Azul and Club Necaxa in his native Mexico.
He has yet to play under Steven Gerrard at the Scottish giants but scored five goals in 14 appearances for the Gers.
The BBC claim that Rangers paid £2million to sign Pena and that he could now move to Poland.
Former Wigan & Fulham man, Jimmy Bullard recently showed that he’s still got it! Check out the video below…
Rangers are currently second in the Scottish Premiership, six points behind leaders Celtic, under Brendan Rodgers.
The club issued a short statement on Tuesday after announcing Pena’s release, reading: “We can confirm that Carlos Pena is no longer a Rangers player. His contract has been terminated. We wish him the best for his future.”
And fans of the Glasgow giants have reacted to the news on Twitter, seemingly delighted that the two parties have parted ways.

Carlos Pena will go down as one of the most crazy ill sighted signings in @RangersFC history. Whoever fell for the Caixinha PowerPoint presentation really should have been punted when he was. Took the ‘banter years’ to extremes. Pena really needs to get help.

Pena's contact has been terminated by Rangers that's good news as it's gets a healthy wage of the wage bill.

Fantastic news, no longer a drain on the club. Still think whoever signed off on Pedro should have walked. Thankfully we now have the real deal in Mr Allen completely restoring scouting system & signing policy working ahead of time. ? All the best to him, but pleased he’s gone.
