Rangers have confirmed striker Eduardo Herrera has left the club on loan until the the end of the season.
But they should cut their losses now and just rip up the Mexican’s contract.
He’s already spent some time on loan back in his homeland and this move likely won’t end in a permanent deal.
Getting him off the wage bill – even if it means buying his contract out – suits everyone and gives everyone a fresh start.
With a year on his contract once his loan ends, there’s little chance of him earning a reprieve at Ibrox.
Even waiting until the summer and trying to negotiate a release makes more sense than keeping him until 2020.
Herrera made 24 appearances, scoring twice, for the Gers after his £1.5 million move.
He spent the first part of this season on loan with Santos Laguna but only managed a handful of appearances.
Steven Gerrard has spoken of his desire to move Herrera and Carlos Pena on and freeing up additional funds to strengthen.
It seems unlikely that Necaxa will pay a significant portion of his wages, leaving Rangers footing most of the bill.
Coming together and negotiating an end to the former Mexico international’s contract is the best option.
