Results over the last week have left Rangers’ hunt for silverware more or less in tatters.

Yet, there are still plenty of matches to come and they must be used wisely.

It may have looked good on paper, but once again, it was a line-up which failed to produce the goods.

Now, it’s time for a shake up.

Grezda must get a go

One of those players waiting in the wings at the minute, is Eros Grezda.

Rangers signed the Albanian international winger in the summer, for a reported fee of approximately £2 million.

There’s little doubt that so far, he’s been a disappointment.

Over the first half of the season, he showed the odd encouraging turn of pace or skill, but only put together one outstanding performance.

We’re now in mid-March and his 2019 is yet to start.

 

The 23-year-old picked up a foot injury during the Gers’ training mid-season training camp in Tenerife, and hasn’t featured since.

He’s been back in training for several weeks now, though. Most recently, he was pictured taking a full part in training before the trip to Hibs. 

He hasn’t yet been reintroduced to a match day squad, though.

Surely, now, the time has come to get him back involved.

Maybe not from the start, but at least as an impact substitute.

Just as with Nikola Katic, the club invested heavily in Grezda and they need to see a return.

The only way for that to happen, is to give him more of an opportunity to show what he can do.

Starting from Saturday, Gerrard needs to give him a go. By the end of the season, then, we’ll have a better idea of the calibre of player Rangers have on their books.
