Pena, who was signed by former Rangers boss Pedro Caixinha from Guadalajara last summer, struggled to hold down a place in the team and also had his fitness questioned during his time at Ibrox.

Rangers said on their website earlier this week that Pedro Caixinha's new side had agreed to pay all of Pena's salary following his arrival on a year-long loan deal from Rangers.

Pena is described as a versatile midfielder that has a great technique and vision, with good passing ability, but apparently, he was unable to adjust to European football.

According to the Sky Sports, Cruz Azul will complete the loan deal for Rangers outcast Carlos Pena in the next few days after the president of Mexican club confirmed that the negotiations are in the final stages.

The club has already made moves to strengthen in the middle of the park in the January window, adding Sean Goss and Jamie Murphy, while they have recalled Michael O'Halloran and Andy Halliday from loan spells.

Rangers, now on a mid-season trip to Florida, are yet to confirm details of the move.

He has 19 caps and two goals for Mexico to his name.

"I'm used to being criticised, I enjoy what I do is play soccer, I come to do things well, I come to give 100 per cent".

Cruz Azul's sporting director Eduardo de la Torre has appeared to play down claims the Mexican side are paying Carlos Pena's wages in full.
