The Albanian international has polarised opinion since joining from Croatian side Osijek, in the summer, for approximately £2 million.
There is clearly a player in there. He helped tear Motherwell apart at Ibrox in November, scoring twice and registering an assist.
However, that’s the subtotal of his efforts in the SPL, so far.
More often than not, his performances haven’t been up to scratch.
A glaring miss at home to Spartak Moscow and an abject display in Dundee, particularly stand out.
Fans reacted underneath the post and offered some very different opinions.
Frustrating.needed to show he could offer more now another setback

That's a blow. We are already short of attacking options.

Clearly, the fans are split on the significance of an injury to Grezda.
He had fallen out of favour by the time the Old Firm fixture came around at the end of last month.
Yet, Rangers aren’t blessed with a whole lot of options in wide areas. Besides himself, there is Daniel Candeias, Glenn Middleton, Ryan Kent and not a whole lot else.
Regardless of how he has performed so far, that area would look a little bare should he be ruled out for a period of time.
