Rangers have a lot of wingers, it’s probably fair to say. 

With Ryan Kent and Joe Aribo being Steven Gerrard’s two preferred options at the moment, the boss can also call on Sheyi Ojo, Brandon Barker, Jordan Jones, and even loanees Jake Hastie and Glenn Middleton if needs be.

So it’s understandable that somebody is going to suffer as a result of that heightened competition for places.

This season, the black sheep has been Eros Grezda.


The Albanian has fallen well out of favour at Ibrox, and is yet to make a Scottish Premiership appearance this term.

And according to a report from The Athletic, he could be destined for an exit from the club next month.

The piece reads: “There were several approaches for the player in the summer but he loves life in Glasgow.

“He has been confined to the development squad for the entire season though after Gerrard decided long before the end of last season he wasn’t cut out for Rangers.

“On the field, Grezda has shown full commitment whenever he has played, despite him playing with teenagers under Graeme Murty.

“But he has struggled to cope with the lack of time and space in Scottish football, and was fined by Gerrard after he spat on a Glentoran player during a Tunnock’s Caramel Wafer Cup game.

“A source tells The Athletic his struggles in Glasgow are “killing him” and that a loan move to France is on the cards. Ligue 1 club Brest were linked with a move in the summer.”

At this stage, an exit, loan or otherwise, feels like the only real solution to the 24-year-old’s problems in Glasgow.

It’s clear that he’s not fancied at all by Steven Gerrard, and his off-field issues, including repeated driving-related offences and the fallout from that spitting incident, hardly portray a player who has a long-term future at a club like the Gers.

It’s a shame when things don’t work out, but it’s time for him to go.
