After Eros Grezda was photographed on crutches, there are fears the injury might keep him out for a substantial length of time.
But should the Albanian be sidelined, could Rangers in turn move to make a certain pre-contract a January transfer?
Jordan Jones has signed a pre-contract to join Rangers at the end of the season. Much to the dismay of many Kilmarnock fans. They’re outraged he’s leaving because, well, because he signed for Rangers.
I think it’s going to be very difficult for Eros Grezda to make it with us. Injured again. No harm to the lad but we have to stop taking players who are not fully fit. We are not in a position to take risk. pic.twitter.com/dCLFqItn4Z

But if Kilmarnock are really that unhappy with the transfer, why not let him leave now? If Eros Grezda joins Jamie Murphy on the long-term injury list, it would mean only Ryan Kent and Glenn Middleton can play on the left.
They’re 22 and 18 respectively. Rangers need strength in depth and experience to challenge and Jones might be a superb solution. If Kilmarnock are willing to deal.
It’s a real shame on Eros Grezda. The winger joined the club for a rumoured £2m from NK Osijek in the Summer but is yet to really make an impression. Barring the 7-1 demolition of Motherwell, Grezda hasn’t really got started.
He had an ankle injury when he joined Rangers. And he’s struggled for fitness ever since.
This is a major blow for the highly rated Albanian international and Rangers. If the injury is serious, Rangers are going to have to fill the winger’s boots somehow.
Could that be with an earlier deal for Jordan Jones?
