The puzzle of Carlos Pena

 Article by: Ibrox Noise

When Mexican Carlos Pena arrived this summer from Guadalajara, the transfer stood out as much for the fee as it did for the player’s own CV.

Pena is a 20-cap Mexican international but a 27-year old one who, till Rangers, had never played outside his homeland; the fee has been speculated anywhere between £2.2M to £3.5M – but the point is Pedro paid a pretty penny for the ex-Leon man’s services and so far his complete absence from the first team has been a talking point among fans.

"The Three (ex) Bears"

If you will forgive the rather awful headline, tonight Rangers host Dunfermline in the League Cup’s second round with a few small subplots brewing.

First off there is a small debate on the site over whether Pedro Caixinha will ring the changes ala League Cup style in order to give fringe players game time, or whether he will elect for continuity and stick with a similar XI to the last two fixtures.

Will 20-cap international be a success at Ibrox?

 Article by: Richard, for Ibrox Noise

Carlos Peña, 27-year-old, 5’ 10” attacking midfield star who has been capped 19 times by Mexico and was selected to play for them in the 2014 World Cup Finals whilst playing for Leon and is now with Rangers and hoping to force his way into playing for us very soon.

The Scottish giants agreed a fee with Chivas Guadalajara for the midfielder’s services and according to Mexican outlet Laaficion, the Liga MX outfit got $4.5m (£3.49m) from the transaction, but through his lack of fitness, he still cannot force his way into this new starting Rangers line-up.

Pedro confirms one selection decision for Progrès

 Article by: Ibrox Noise

Rangers’ manager Pedro Caixinha has confirmed that one new signing of either Carlos Pena or Eduardo Herrera will either be on the bench tonight or in the starting XI.

That is a 50/50 for both but looking at the failings of the first leg in which a lack of cutting edge beset the night’s performance before the overall shape started to fade from around 50' onwards, it seems worth looking at the options this leaves.

XI for Progres: starts for four summer signings?

 Article by: Ibrox Noise

With only two days to go till Rangers’ first competitive action of the new season, speculation is reaching fever pitch over what the maiden XI of campaign 2017/2018 will be when the side faces Progres.

With eight signings incoming and increasing numbers of outgoing on a near daily basis, manager Pedro Caixinha is certainly spoiled for choice when it comes to Thursday’s line up. The question is what XI and formation will he choose?

Summer signing: "Two years at Ibrox, then move on"

 Article by: Richard, for Ibrox Noise

Ibrox boss Pedro Caixinha told Carlos Pena, his new Mexican midfield star, that he wanted to take him to Glasgow Rangers when he was given the job in March, by our forward-thinking Board of Directors.

Caixinha explained that he planned to speak to Carlos’s agent, Salvador Necochea, to make it clear that he had a lucrative long-term plan for his player. Eventually, after about three months of negotiations, Pedro got his way as they reached a 3-year-deal with the help of his current team Chivas and Rangers.

Pedro Caixinha thinks Rangers have solved a big problem with this signing

 Article by: Ibrox Noise

If there is one thing Rangers have missed in recent years, it has been the modern position of ‘box to box’ midfielder.

That is, a midfielder who can cover the grass from both boxes as effectively as each other, fulfilling attacking and defensive duties especially well, and particularly being able to nab a decent handful of goals or more from midfield.

The 27-year old Mexican international midfielder has been working on his switch from South America to Govan for some considerable time, and it appears the enforcer is finally ready to jet in and have his medical.

"They're close" - the five deals tantalistingly near completion

 Article by: Ibrox Noise

With Rangers having already secured five players in earnest for the new campaign, attention has turned to the ‘nearlies’.

There are five players who seem tantalisingly close to joining the ranks at Ibrox, which would essentially make an entirely new team from the one which performed so dismally last season – and only the full back areas would still require work.
