Rangers flop Carlos Pena has torn up a contract with a new club after they failed to pay his wages with breakaway Mexican league Liga del Balompie Mexicano on the verge of collapse.
Veracruzano are one of the clubs in the new Mexican venture which is designed to rival established Mexican top tier the Liga MX.
Pena, 30, was hoping to get his career back on track after a variety of horror moves but once again the midfielder has been left club-less after the latest scandal involving the player.
“I have decided to no longer be a part of the club. I have broken all ties with the Veracruzano club for breach of contract,” said Pena [Daily Record].
Veracruzano are one of 14 clubs who’ve formed a breakaway Mexican league which is struggling financially with two sides already ejected from the competition for financial issues.
Pena continues to toil in football and it will come as no surprise to Rangers fans who were left frustrated and angry about the player’s time in Glasgow.
Carlos Pena will go down as one of the biggest flops in Ibrox history, with the midfielder reportedly costing the club £2.2m from Guadalajara [Daily Mail] during the summer of 2017 during the ill-fated reign of Pedro Caixinha.
The midfielder was also rumoured to be earning £25k per week and alongside fellow flop, £1.5m striker Edouardo Herrera [Daily Record], sums up Caixinha’s time at the club.
Despite making 19 caps for Mexico – and scoring twice – Pena never knuckled down in Glasgow and was eventually farmed out on loan to firstly Cruz Azul and then Nexaca in his homeland.
Released 18 months into his spell at Ibrox, Pena would then go on to have failed spells at Polish second-tier side GKS Tychy and Mexican side Correcaminos.
