Rangers winger Eros Grezda has endured a nightmare time with the club since his arrival in the summer of 2018.
However, with the January transfer window just days away now, an end may well be in sight.
It’s been made abundantly clear that the Gers are looking to move on players this winter who have been struggling for game time [Scottish Herald]. That’s a category Grezda certainly falls into.
In fact, the 24-year-old hasn’t made a single first-team appearance this season, with his most recent outing coming as a substitute in a 3-0 win at Motherwell in April.
He’s been frozen out entirely by Steven Gerrard after a wretched first campaign, featuring only for the Colts and the Development squad this term.
He missed a penalty in a Development team match before receiving criticism and internal disciplinary action after allegedly spitting on an opponent during a Challenge Cup clash against Ballymena United.
His only real positive contribution of the campaign was scoring a brace to bring the Colts back from the brink away at Solihull Moors.
Grezda’s total lack of first-team action has seen him lose his spot in the Albania squad, while his value likely continues to depreciate.
The priority has to be moving the winger on in this window, though. Therefore, if no fee is forthcoming, the club should let him go on a free. At least that way the wage bill will be lightened.
It’s time to cut the cord with Grezda and to move on from what has undoubtedly been a failed transfer.
