Eros Grezda suggests Rangers not his main priority

Eros Grezda has been speaking about his recent injury troubles, as quoted by the Daily Record.

A fully fledged international winger with pace and trickery, he looked an exciting addition.

Unfortunately, not much went his way during the first half of the season.
The winter break looked to have come at a good time for him. A chance to go away, regroup and come back ready to impress.
However, he sustained a foot injury during the mid-season training camp in Tenerife and only returned at the weekend.

“I had a very difficult time the last two months”, said Grezda, as quoted by the Record.
“When I was injured and they (the doctors) told me it was serious, the first thing that came to mind is to not lose my place in the national team.”
“So during the time I was injured I worked as hard as I could to meet those challenges. I trained privately with coaches and did extra to make sure I returned as quickly as possible.”

International football comes first for Grezda

Of course, it’s both admirable that he took on extra to get back fit sooner and understandable that as a young player, he greatly values representing his country.
However, it jars a little that his club didn’t feature the highest on his list of priorities.

Rangers invested heavily in him in the summer and while no player can help getting injured, one would have thought his main goal this season would be proving himself at Ibrox.
Two months on the sidelines has left him with less than ten league matches in which to showcase his abilities.
His signed with the club on a four-year-deal, therefore it’s far from last chance saloon. Nonetheless, it’s a little disappointing big performances for Rangers aren’t foremost in his mind.
