It appears as though Rangers’ Eduardo Herrera is set to leave the club this week for Mexican side Puebla FC. The player was brought into Rangers for £1.53 million back in the Summer of 2017. The news was confirmed when Puebla FC announced the arrival on Twitter.
Upon hearing the news many Rangers fans were thrilled. They are glad to see the player moved on after failing to make an impact at the Glaswegian club. The striker, who is currently valued at £900k according to Transfermarkt, has played in just 24 games for the Gers, scoring a measly two goals. Now that he is gone they are hoping that the wages and transfer fee can be reallocated to make some improvements to the first-team. Some are surprised they are getting anything for him.
Amazing to get £1million for him.

We should use the transfer fee from Herrera deal to buy… who am I kidding… hire another dinner lady.

20k a week saved. Wonder if that will be put to use now ?

If it were all up to me I’d keep Jones and bring in Windass and maybe another addition, now that we’ve got Barker, Grezda, Herrera and Murphy off the wage bill for the time being

Are you glad to see Herrera leave the club?
However, one fan is just happy to see that he is leaving altogether.

Another jokes that Herrara was no more than just a tourist during his time with the club. He sees his saga at the club as an unplanned vacation.

What do we think?
Hopefully, Rangers can make use of the money they will save by not having Herrera on the books. But if they want to make any moves in this transfer window they will have to work quickly.
