Following Lassana Coulibaly, the next player under scrutiny is €2 million man, Eros Grezda.

A 9-cap Albanian international, he arrived at Ibrox during the latter part of the summer.

He made his debut as a substitute in the league hammering of Dundee in mid-September.

Yet, he had to wait until early November to get his first opportunity in the starting line-up.

It was later that month that saw his best performance to date, in a Rangers shirt. He played a pivotal role in the mauling of Motherwell, scoring twice and registering an assist.

However, in the final third, that’s the only tangible impact he has made so far.

After a promising outing at Hearts, he particularly struggled in December. The winger got fans off their seats, but consistently failed to produce end product at both Dundee and Hibs.

By the time the Old Firm match came around, he was out of favour.

What’s more, it seems that the winger has now picked up an injury.

We understand that players take varying lengths of time to adapt to new surroundings. Yet, Grezda simply has to show more during the second half of the season.

Gerrard thinks so too.

To think we let 18-goal Josh Windass leave for a similar fee that Grezda commanded.

Based on current evidence, it’s hard to argue we haven’t downgraded.

If his injury isn’t serious, there’s still plenty of time for the 23-year-old to make his mark.

So far, though, it has definitely been underwhelming.
