Glasgow Rangers chief Mark Allen is keen to offload Eduardo Herrera as “soon as he can”, according to a report by the Daily Record.
It is being claimed that the Director of Football wants to get the Mexican striker of the club’s wage bill as quickly as possible as he looks to trim their overall costs down.
The 30-year-old, who joined the Light Blues last summer as one of Pedro Caixinha’s signings, flopped badly and Rangers are feeling the cost as he is believed to be on expensive wages.
Herrera did leave the club this summer, however, it was on a temporary basis where he returned to his homeland to turn out for Santos Laguna on a season-long loan deal.
Having recorded figures of just two goals in 24 appearances during his brief spell at Ibrox, he would have hoped things would have gone better for him at his previous club.
However, he has featured just nine times for the Liga MX outfit and is yet to find the back of the net.
Herrera is contracted to Rangers until 2020 and will be with Santos until next summer making that the earliest Allen can look to offload him permanently.
However, given his recent struggles back in Mexico, it could be a difficult task to try and find someone willing to take the 30-year-old off the Light Blues’ hands.
