quote from Newsnow Rangers regarding our Mexican signings. According to both Excelsior and Univision in Mexico, the moves to Rangers are now in doubt as neither of the player's have played in 75% of their national team's games over the past two years, which, they believe, is a requirement by the Scottish FA before handing out the work permit.

Excelsior say both players now have to wait a few days to see if there's any way to get around that requirement, and Univision state that could happen if Rangers convince a panel of former footballers that Peña and Eduardo Herrera will 'contribute to the growth of Scottish football'.

Old news mate. That's all we are waiting on regarding Carlos Pena, Panel are meant to be making the decision next week.

Just seen that article on NewNow, that's a bit concerning but I'm find it hard to fathom how these deals would have practicly got this far with at least a high degree of confidence that they would go ahead.

Although if we have got to sit in front of a biased SFA panel then I really do fear for those deals.

And make us look 👀 like idiots bringing these Mexican lads to Glasgow for medicals and signing talks, with both Pena and Herrera getting there pic taken everywhere.

I'm hoping that that article was not correct. Or at least I hope 🤞 so.

Home Office issues work permits, not the SFA

From what I have heard they boys have work permits, but need permission from the SFA to play in the league.

Good old SFA!

The 3 man SFA panel have to agree that the players will be a benefit to the league. Then they make a recomendation to the Home Office for work permits. Nothing new here and has been widely reported since we showed interest in them. Rangers new this going into the deals.
