When Pedro Caixinha was sacked by Glasgow Rangers, we always expected some rumours about departures of the Mexican players in the squad.
These story didn’t really show up at the time, but there are two interesting reports coming from different places which have raised our eyebrows today.
First the English press claimed Alfredo Morelos is demanding a pay rise after the Ibrox club turned down an offer from China for him.
And now the Mexican press is saying Eduardo Herrera is ‘expecting to have more minutes’ for Rangers in the next league games.
Herrera only had 19 minutes on the pitch against Fraserburgh for the FSA Cup on Wednesday, and couldn’t do much for Graeme Murty’s side the game was pretty much won by the time he got on the pitch.
Now El Siglo De Torreon claims the player hopes to have another chance in the next league game for Rangers, which will be played against Hibernian this Saturday.
Although there are no suggestions of a rebellion against the club, the Mexican press is not used to writing pre-match stories like these, so there was certainly someone feeding them Herrera’s wish to play.
Since being signed from Mexican side Pumas last summer, the striker only had two league starts for Rangers. The only goal he scored for the club so far was in a League Cup game back in September.
