Correcaminos president Miguel Mansur has detailed how he pleaded with fans of his side to report seeing Rangers flop Carlos Pena in local bars in a bid to curb his wayward career – and it seems to have been working.
Mansur claims he’s had no reports at all of Pena in bars after his public battles with alcohol and hailed Pena’s dedication to his new side.
The Mexican minnows are a world away from Ibrox and Mansur insists Pena is “more settled” than he’s been at any point hin his career.
“Here in Ciudad Victoria, the people will look after him and protect him,” Mansur said, as quoted by the Daily Record.
“I did a forum with the fans when he signed and told them that if any of them spotted him in a bar or drinking, they had to go straight to me immediately and tell me.
“Do you know how many fans have contacted me since then? None.
“He is committed to football and this club. He loves his family too and I believe he is more settled now than he’s ever been.”
Pena played just 14 times for Rangers, moving from Mexico under Pedro Caixinha, and scored five goals against Dundee, Partick Thistle, St Johnstone and Aberdeen – before his Ibrox career went off the rails completely.
After being released by Rangers, he moved to Polish side GKS Tychy but never played a single game for them following a dispute over wages and eventually ripped his contract up.
Since his return to Mexico, hopefully, he’s got his career back on track after a shambolic few years following his move to Glasgow with compatriot Eduardo Herrera.
