Carlos Pena looks set to finally end his disappointing spell at Rangers this afternoon after turning up for a medical with Mexican side Cruz Azul – but he employed an odd way of trying to hide his identity from waiting journalists.
The midfielder arrived in Glasgow last summer, sporting a hefty weekly wage and a rumoured sizeable transfer fee, but he never really got going at Ibrox, and will now reunite with the man who brought him to Scottish football, Pedro Caixinha, at his new side.
He arrived in Mexico at the weekend and was spotted in the stands for Azul’s disappointing 0-0 draw with Tijuana, and it now looks like the Gers will recoup a fair amount of the outlay they forked out just over six months ago, according to the Daily Record.
But as he arrived to put the final touches on the deal, Pena initially thought about trying to hide his face under some Rangers shorts he was carrying – complete with his squad number:

Yip, there’s no real use, Carlos – we can see it’s you.
