Rangers flop Eduardo Herrera’s future remains shrouded in confusion as the Mexican striker was pictured preparing for Sunday’s Super Copa MX in Los Angeles – despite his loan with the Liga MX side ending last month.

Herrera spent the second half of last season with Club Necaxa and reported for pre-season with the Mexicans as they prepare for the new season.

Necaxa will face former Rangers manager Pedro Caixinha’s Cruz Azul side in Los Angeles on Sunday and it will be interesting to see if Herrera will play any part.

 

The striker still has a year remaining on his Ibrox contract but it seems likely his exit will come much sooner.

When Herrera originally joined the Mexicans on loan in January, it was announced as a deal until the end of the season, and with no further announcement from either club, it seemed that he was just training with his former side.

His time at Ibrox was an unmitigated disaster with the striker offering little before being axed from the squad completely.

Freeing up his wages would be a boost for the Gers with Herrera among the higher earners at the club.

Despite flopping at Ibrox, Herrera has done pretty well with Necaxa and, judging by the way they’ve kept him around after his loan ended, there could be a chance of getting some sort of deal done.
