Carlos Pena has confirmed he almost certainly wants to go home, and manager Graeme Murty has supported the idea.
Ibrox Noise first raised this some days ago, but the player has now admitted he has set on his sights on a move back to Mexico, while manager Murty has opened the door for the disappointing signing to exit.
“In any team I’ve been, my mentality will be to succeed, do things well and leave a story, that’s what goes through my head. But I do not rule out having a B option to go back to Mexico, nothing would happen, I want to enjoy, play football and be happy.”
And in response, Murty had this to say about the 27 year old:
“No we’ve not spoken yet (he and Pena) but all players, when it comes to January, will be looking at their options, no matter whether you have a four-year deal or are in your last six months.”
Pena’s time at Ibrox has been largely frustrating. The few occasions where the Hispanic turned up, his quality was evident for all to see. But his displays have been mostly lethargic, disinterested, slow, and lazy, and he appears mostly ill-suited to the SPL.
It would be better for all concerned if he was to move on, with Rangers seeking to recoup a decent chunk of change for him.
