EDUARDO HERRERA insists he isn’t ready to give up on his dream of playing in Europe and leave Rangers after just half a season at Ibrox.

The Mexican moved to Glasgow alongside compatriot Carlos Pena in the summer but has struggled to make an impact in Light Blue.

Pena was this week reunited with former boss Pedro Caixinha as he joined Cruz Azul on loan until the end of the campaign.

But Herrera has spent recent days working with Graeme Murty’s squad in Florida and he got an assist in the win over Atletico Mineiro on Thursday night as he set up Josh Windass for the only goal of the game.

He said: "The team played well, we used a lot of preparation in this little pre-season we have, we trained hard and got an important result for the second part of the tournament there in Scotland.

"A lot of changes: the city, the style of football, the weather, there have been a lot of changes and adaptation, now in this second period of the tournament it's important to keep looking for more minutes in the team, it's one of my main goals.

"The fans are impressive, the best I've seen, it's a passion that overflows for the team and one as a player thanks and hopes to respond.

"One of the dreams is to play in Europe and I'm living it, but for now I do not think about that (return to Liga MX), I signed three years with Rangers and I'm still two and a half years to go.”
