Why Carlos Pena’s return is a problem for Rangers

The deal that Rangers struck to sign Carlos Pena in the summer of 2017 clearly sets Steven Gerrard’s teeth on edge. A £2.2 million fee was paid to Mexican side Guadalajara for the midfielder, given a three-year deal on a reputed £26,000-a-week terms. Effectively, then manager Pedro Caixinha was allowed to make a £5.5m investment on a player who has given little in return. And £5.5m is precisely the figure that Gerrard gives for the money he spent on transfer fees in the summer to entirely reconstruct a squad that he undoubtedly has made much sturdier.
