Frozen out Rangers winger Eros Grezda may appear to have no Rangers future at Ibrox, but that didn’t stop him turning out for the Rangers Colts last night.
The Albanian international played 83 minutes as Rangers won 2-0 against League One Stranraer to secure their place in the third round of the Caramel Wafer Challenge Cup.
Goals from Josh McPake and Jamie Barjonas earned the Gers youngsters an impressive win against the solid west coast outfit.

But despite Eros Grezda getting the chance to stretch his legs in the game, there’s little doubt it will be one of his last sightings in a Rangers shirt.
The club have made no bones about their desire to move Grezda on, but Steven Gerrard has reiterated that Rangers are yet to receive a suitable offer for the player.
The club are clearly determined to move Grezda on permanently and recoup the majority of the £2m spent on the winger last summer.
The likes of Ligue 1 sides Brest and Dijon were previously linked with a move [Scottish Sun] for the player but so far nothing has materialised.
Yet Grezda’s agent, Ives Cakarun, has suggested that the player is closing in on a move to Ligue 1 [Evening Express].
We’ll have to wait and see on that.
And if Rangers were hoping to put him in the shop window against Stranraer the winger hasn’t appeared to grab his chance.
