Rangers are ready to rip up Mexican midfielder Carlos Pena’s contract at the club, according to reports in his homeland.
The Scottish Sun report that the Gers could save as much as £20,000-a-week by getting rid of the transfer flop, with manager Steven Gerrard desperate to free up some wage resources ahead of the upcoming summer transfer window.
Pena arrived for a reported £2.2m in the summer of 2017, heralded as one of Pedro Caixinha’s blockbuster signings. However fitness issues and subsequent problems on loan in Mexico have ruined his Ibrox career and fans would likely be delighted to see the back of him.
With the club considering letting him go for nothing, the midfielder is reportedly considering options in Turkey, Poland and Mexico.
It’s clear that his Rangers future is over having returned to Glasgow but not featured in training at Auchenhowie.
Gerrard has washed his hands of the player and the club look to now be formally cutting ties with him too.
Will it happen on deadline day?
