Delighted To Be Up And Running

From Rangers.co.uk:

EDUARDO HERRERA was delighted to score his first Gers goal in Dingwall and the striker is targeting a start and more goals at Firhill tonight.

The Mexican got off the mark for Rangers in his last outing against Ross County and admits it was great to bag his first goal since joining the club in June.

Herrera came to Glasgow with fellow Mexican Carlos Pena and says they had to play catch up to get up to speed in Scotland.

Speaking to RangersTV the 29-year-old said:

“It was such a great moment to score my first goal for the club. As a striker you feel a lot of joy and relief when you score your first goal because sometimes that is the hardest one.

“Once you score the first one you have more confidence and it becomes easier. I am looking forward to scoring more goals now.

“I am always very hard on myself and I like to set myself high expectations, sometimes I can be too hard on myself and that can be a good or bad thing. That pressure I put on myself can sometimes frustrate me.

“I am very happy I scored in that game and that we won the game but I am also pleased with the momentum the team is gaining right now.

“I have enjoyed being part of Rangers a lot and I have tried to adapt as quickly as possible.

“It has not been easy for us to come here after such a long break and try to catch up with the guys who had been training for almost a month.

“We have worked really hard and I think we are getting in shape now, getting our rhythm and trying to do a lot of good things for this team.”

The start of Herrera’s Rangers tenure has been hampered by a couple of slight injuries which he confesses came as some surprise to him having coasted through his career with few problems.

He explained:

“In my entire career I haven’t had many injuries and here I have already missed two games because of a dead leg and a hamstring injury.

“It was frustrating for me because in my entire career I think I have only lost two games to injury and here in a short time I have already missed the same.

“I hope with all the hard work and shape we are gaining that there are no more problems like that.

“It was also because I was feeling the physicality here, the football in Scotland is a lot more physical than in Mexico.

“Mexico is more technical whereas here there are more fouls but we are getting used to it and we will do fine.”
