Eduardo Herrera has tweeted a heartfelt message to the Rangers fans and staff after the club announced his permanent departure on Thursday [].

The 31-year-old forward has joined Liga MX side Club Puebla.

It marks the end of a disappointing stint for the Mexican attacker, who was brought to the club by Pedro Caixinha in 2017.

He made just 23 appearances in total, most of which from the bench, scored only two goals.

His last appearance for the Gers came way back in February 2018 in a Scottish Cup tie against Ayr United, and he’s since spent time back in his homeland on loan with Santos Laguna and Necaxa.

Despite all that, though, it seems he still has fond memories of his time in Glasgow and he expressed his feelings in a tweet in response to Rangers’ statement.

“I will always have fond memories of Glasgow and it’s people,” he wrote.

“As well a few friendships I could make inside the building with all the amazing staff and teammates. Once a Ger always a Ger!”

However, it seems his parting comments have won him a few friends back, with the post racking up over 8000 likes at the time of writing.

After several seasons of upheaval, the forward is likely now looking forward to a new permanent home and a chance to play regular football.
