Rangers Confirm Carlos Pena’s Release With Brief Statement

Rangers have confirmed Mexican midfielder Carlos Pena’s release with a very brief statement

The Ibrox club signed the Mexican midfielder from Guadalajara in June 2017 in a deal thought to be worth £2.2million.

Pedro Caixinha was the man who signed Pena, bringing him in to provide some much-needed goals in the Rangers midfield.

But there were more off-field highlights than there were on it and Pena was quickly shipped out of the club on loan following Caixinha’s sacking last season.

Since then, the midfielder has spent time out on loan with Cruz Azul and Necaxa – with the latest switch coming about after Cruz Azul ended his loan early amid reports he would spend time in rehab.

But Pena’s time in Necaxa was shortlived and he was soon told he could return to Rangers – although that never seemed to materialise.

Steven Gerrard was quizzed just weeks ago about Pena’s future and if he would return to the Ibrox squad, but the manager was tight-lipped on that.

Now Rangers have confirmed Pena’s exit from the club, saying in a statement per rangers.co.uk:

“We can confirm that Carlos Pena is no longer a Rangers player. His contract has been terminated. We wish him the best for his future.”

In his short time at Rangers, Pena scored five goals in 14 appearances for the club.
