As quoted by the Daily Record, Carlos Pena has spoken out about his time at Rangers.
The Mexican international’s Gers contract was terminated last month, and he now looks set for pastures new.
After all, this was a guy with genuine international pedigree.
However, ultimately, his first foray into European football was unsuccessful.
Despite only leaving last month, his last game for the Gers came in a 0-0 Old Firm draw in December 2017.
“At Rangers, it did not go the way I wanted, but I must look forward now”, said Pena, as quoted by the Record.
“I have a new opportunity in Poland. I’m 29 now and I know this is my last chance to get back to the top of my game.”
“I admit the mistakes I made at Rangers and back in Mexico (during two loan spells), but I have learned from them. I believe I can return to the level that saw me play for my country”, he continued.
“I’m in a good physical state, I am emotionally in a good place too and with work and dedication, I know I can get back to where I was.”
Time to rebuild
It’s great news to hear those last comments in particular. Off field issues were a big factor in his dip in performance levels, but hopefully they are now a thing of the past.
He went on to explain that although he received an offer from GKS Tychy, in the Polish second tier, he now has multiple options in the Ekstraklasa, the top division.
The midfielder has reportedly travelled to Poland for further talks.
