The mystery surrounding Rangers flop Eduardo Herrera’s Ibrox status took another turn as the Mexican striker played for Necaxa in Sunday’s SuperCopa MX final against Pedro Caixinha’s Cruz Azul.
Herrera clearly has no Ibrox future but, after the striker’s loan expired on June 30th, he’s continued to train and play for the Mexicans.

The former international played the full 90 minutes as he came up against the man who took him to Scottish football,
with Herrera’s side taking a heavy 4-0 defeat as the two winners of the Copa MX met in Los Angeles.
When Herrera arrived in Scotland, the striker was handed a deal worth a reported £20,000 per week but hasn’t kicked a ball for the Light Blues since February 2018.
During his time at Ibrox, Herrera made 24 appearances for Rangers but managed just two goals and was used mainly as a substitute.

While there has been no announcement by the Gers – or Necaxa – of an extension to Herrara’s loan deal, it looks as though he’ll be staying there a bit longer.
Herrera does still have a year left on his contract but there is no hint over whether it is a loan extension or a permanent switch, however, it is probably safe to say he won’t be back in Glasgow any time soon.
