Pedro Caixinha’s Rangers rebuild has added yet another two new faces today with Carlos Peña and Eduardo Herrera becoming the seventh and eighth signings of the summer. Mexican midfielder Pena has signed a three-year contract and moves from Guadalajara in his homeland; the 27-year-old has also represented the Mexican national team 19 times. Compatriot Herrera has also signed a three-year deal from UNAM Pumas.

Peña began his career Pachuca before moving to Léon, initially on loan in 2011, permanently in 2013. During his spell at Léon, Peña would win the Liga MX Apertura & Clausura tournaments in 2013/14 earning a transfer to Guadalajara in 2015. Peña spent a year with Chivas before being loaned out, once again, to Léon last year. The midfielder was also part of his country’s squad at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

28-year-old striker Herrera has been with UNAM his entire career, although had two loan stints at Santos Laguna and Veracruz, before moving to Glasgow. Herrera has also represented his country; making 9 appearances and scoring three times for El Tri since making his debut in 2015.

The pair have been registered in the player list for the Europa League first qualifying round fixture against Progres Niederkorn and could make their debuts next week in the first leg at Ibrox.
