RANGERS have confirmed that Carlos Pena has left Ibrox to join Cruz Azul on a year-long loan deal.

The midfielder moved to Glasgow from Mexico in the summer but failed to live up to his price tag.

And he has now been reunited with former boss Pedro Caixinha after just half a season and 14 matches in Light Blue.

A statement read: "Rangers would like to thank Carlos for his services to date and wish him the best at his new club."
