Eduardo Herrera continues to rub salt into Rangers’ wounds.
The 6ft 2′ former Mexico international came to the club for £1.53 million from UNAM Pumas in 2017. He reportedly picked up over £20,000-a-week in wages, yet only scored two goals as a Ger.
Both he and his compatriot, Carlos Pena, were massive disappointments.
So much so, that there were fears there wouldn’t be takers for either player during this window.
While Pena’s future is still uncertain, Herrera secured a loan move to Necaxa on 8 January.
Since joining, he has finally regained his scoring touch.
The 30-year-old found the net three minutes into his debut in the Copa MX against Atletico San Luis and followed that up last week against Club America.
Herrera nets penalty in comeback winAt the weekend, he registered his third in four matches. This time, it came in the league, away at Lobos BUAP.
It was an important contribution too.
His side went 2-0 down after just 9 minutes, after a brace from Leanardo Ramos.
Yet, after the visitor’s pulled one back through Martin Barragan, the Rangers loanee stepped up.
In the 54th minute, Herrera was barged over in the box and earned his side a penalty.
Despite it being only his fourth outing for the club, he then took on the penalty responsibilities and despatched the spot kick into the top left corner.
A spectacular volley ten minutes later from Angel Sepulveda, completed the unlikely comeback.
Herrera has never scored at Ibrox. Yet, with three goals in his opening four matches at Necaxa, the Rangers loanee is finally showing evidence of an eye for goal.
