Much maligned Rangers winger Eros Grezda is set to return to Croatian side NK Osijek on a permanent deal, according to a leading Scottish sports journalist.

Andy Devlin has taken to Twitter to claim that the Ibrox side has managed to off-load the Albanian international back to the club they bought him from.

Rangers paid a reported £2m to take Grezda to Ibrox from Osijek but the winger never settled in Scottish football and leaves having failed to make an impression.

Four Lads Had a Dream confirmed that Rangers received a nominal fee for the player with potential sell-on fees, in what they described as a “great deal all considered”.

That £2m was a considerable outlay for Rangers and Grezda goes down as the biggest transfer disappointment of Steven Gerrard’s regime.


Making 17 appearances for Rangers last season but only managing two goals – both in a 7-1 win over Motherwell in November 2018 – the club struggled to move the winger on in the summer.

The Albanian would then turn out for the Colts side during their Challenge Cup campaign but hasn’t been seen he allegedly spat on a rival player against Ballymena United.

If the writing wasn’t on the wall before then, it certainly was afterwards when Steven Gerrard condemned the incident.

Given the club’s struggles to move Grezda on, Rangers fan have praised Ross Wilson for helping shift the expensive flop as they reacted to the news.

Eros Grezda becomes the third player to leave Rangers in this transfer, following Andy King and Serge Atakayi out the exit door.
