Manager confirms £11,000 per week sensational won’t return back at Ibrox

According to the management of Cruzeiro, Jose Cifuentes will not return to Rangers after his loan period ends.

The Ibrox midfielder has completed a temporary move to South America after suffering in his half-season with the Light Blues,

and his new manager, Nicolas Larcamon, is confident the permanent option in his contract will be triggered.

Cifuentes, 24, made only nine SPFL appearances, and Rangers have now confirmed his loan runs through 2024,

with Larcamon “sure” he will join Cruzeiro permanently.

“The deal is complete,” he told the Daily Record on February 10. We have the option of purchasing Jose Cifuentes at the end of his loan,

and I am confident that will happen. He is quite complete  player and will bring significant benefits to the team.

“Jose has numerous strengths in his game. He is very comfortable on the ball and will also offer aggression to the team.

He will greatly benefit our midfield and will be a valuable addition to the squad,

and we aim to get him on board as soon as possible.”

Cifuentes’ permanent Rangers exit is’sure’.

Larcamon appears certain that the permanent trade will be completed,

although it was only half a season ago that Michael Beale made similar claims regarding the Ecuadorian international.

Clearly, they were incorrect at the time, as Cifuentes was unable to establish himself in a Light Blues shirt and his previous boss was fired.

The former LAFC player’s opportunity under Philippe Clement was probably squandered

when he was sent off against Dundee on December 9th, in what would be his final league game.

That period appeared to be his best chance to break into the club, with Nico Raskin, Tom Lawrence, and Ryan Jack all out,

but his suspension for the Viaplay Cup final victory summed up an unhappy Rangers career.

If he performs as well as his new manager predicts, and the option is exercised, it appears to be the best conclusion for all parties.

On present form, the Gers aren’t missing him, with injured options returning and Mohamed Diomande signing in January,

and Cifuentes had plenty of admirers, so his reputation can’t have suffered too much.
