Since the arrival of Steven Gerrard as the club’s new manager, the Gers have been exceptionally busy in the transfer market. The Liverpool legend has successfully identified and acquired recruits as he seeks to disrupt Celtic’s dominance. Yet, to fund arrivals, the nature of the game dictates that players must leave. Rangers supporters shouldn’t be too disheartened at the news that Eduardo Herrera is leaving the club.
According to the Scottish Sun, the 29-year-old forward is on the verge of returning to Mexico following a mostly disappointing spell with Rangers. The Mexican striker only managed to amass a measly total of two goals in 21 appearances for the Gers, and he failed to acclimatise himself successfully with the demands of Scottish football.
In fact, his arrival was indicative of Rangers’ recent poor recruitment. Before his arrival, he had only managed to score double figures in a season on two occasions, both of which were with UNAM in the Mexican league. Herrera was devoid of European experience before joining Rangers, and in hindsight, his arrival seemed to represent a risk more than a concentrated effort to acquire the right player for the club.
To his credit, Steven Gerrard has been exceedingly astute in his transfer dealings to date, and he will have to continue in that vain if the Gers are going to assemble a squad that will be able to compete with Celtic for the title.
