Rangers flop Carlos Pena is set for a return to Mexico with Liga MX side Monarcas Morelia after going AWOL with Polish second-tier side GKS Tychy.
According to quotes in the Scottish Sun, Pena has offers from clubs in Turkey and Russia but will likely move back to Mexico.
“I have spoken to the president of Tychy and everything is nearly sorted,” said Pena.
“I have offers to play in Turkey and Russia, but Mexico looks more likely
“I feel fit and ready to play.”
Whilst Pena might’ve now become a figure of ridicule and humour amongst the Rangers support, the entire thing really leaves a bad taste in the mouth.
The attacking midfielder went through highly publicised off-field problems during his time in Glasgow and he was eventually sent back on-loan to Mexico.
After failing to knuckle down in Central America he returned to Rangers but his contract was unceremoniously terminated – much to the delight of fans.
The needle then went back to the start of the song.
Pena wasted Rangers’ time and money at a period in the club’s history when we could scarcely afford to do so.
Whilst it’s all well and good blaming those people who brought him to the club – to the tune of £2.2m and on £25k+ a week wages – at what point does responsibility lie with him?
Why anyone would take a risk on this player who is clearly uninterested in representing a football club correctly is mindboggling.
It’s incredible that people still humourise the player and the entire situation.
But you’ve got to either laugh or cry.
He was a time-waster at Rangers, and whilst his off-field issues deserve a degree of respect, his actions before, during and after his time at Ibrox suggest nothing has changed.
