Rangers fans who hoped to see Eros Grezda take the field against Scotland on Monday will have to wait a little longer. The left winger has been sent home from the Albania camp.
The Alabnian hasn’t beat a niggly ankle injury which has kept him out since March. That means he won’t be available to play in Albania’s upcoming internationals against Israel and Scotland.
It’s a big loss for Albania. Coach Alban Bushi believes the player is “world class” and sees him as central part of Christian Panucci’s Albanian team.
Yet to play a game this season
Left winger Grezda looked set to take the field against Scotland in what would’ve been his first game of the season.
But fans will need to wait to see what he brings to the team.
Steven Gerrard said he was a player who would get the fans excited and you imagine he too will be eager to see what he can bring to his squad.
Fans will be hoping this is a precaution
Grezda cost Rangers £2m from familiar foes Osijek even though he hasn’t kicked a ball this season. He wasn’t available for Rangers Europa League qualifier for the Croats either.
But this move may just be a precautionary one and he could be available next weekend.
The ankle knock is a recurring problem and Rangers will be hoping it settles quickly.
Grezda has made six caps for Albania and scored one goal for the Balkan country.
