Rangers striker Eduardo Herrera looks to be heading for the exit at Ibrox this summer and return to his native Mexico, according to the Daily Record.

The 29-year-old, who was signed by former manager Pedro Caixinha last summer in a £1.5 million deal from Pumas, has scored just twice in 24 appearances for the Gers and has fallen down the pecking order due to the arrival of Jason Cummings.

Rangers are prepared to cut their losses once the transfer window reopens in June and Mexican side Chivas are at the front of the queue for his services.

Herrera has not featured for the Glasgow club since the goalless draw with Celtic at the end of December and has yet to feature under caretaker manager Graeme Murty.

The Mexican international has scored just one goal in the Scottish Premiership, which was back in August in a 3-1 win over Ross County, and has only once completed a full 90 minutes in a Rangers shirt.

Chivas are believed to have already made an enquiry for the striker they tried to sign two years ago but could not afford the asking fee Pumas demanded.

Herrera put pen-to-paper on a three-year contract upon arrival and joined the same day as his fellow countryman Carlos Pena, who is currently on loan at Cruz Azul which is under the management of Caixinha.

Rangers are currently second in the Scottish Premiership and suffered their first defeat in seven matches with a 3-2 loss to arch-rivals Celtic on Sunday. The two sides will meet again on April 15 in the Scottish Cup semi-final.

The Gers have the chance to put the defeat behind them when they welcome Kilmarnock to Ibrox on Saturday and Murty’s side finish the month with a trip to Motherwell on March 31.
