What next for Rangers and Albania winger Eros Grezda?

Rangers winger Eros Grezda looked nailed on to leave Ibrox this summer, but the club has been unable to shift the Albanian international before the end of the window.

Joining for £2m from NK Osijek last summer, the Albanian international struggled to make an impression at the club and Gerrard confirmed interest in the player this summer.

But with no clubs putting forward a deal which suited Rangers, what next for the much-maligned winger?

At the moment, Grezda will be hoovering up a decent wage and doing very little to deserve it.

Barring an appearance or two for the development squad this season, it remains incredibly unlikely that Grezda will earn a spot at Ibrox.

That doesn’t mean he shouldn’t stop trying.

For me, Grezda should be working his socks off to get back into the first team and prove to the club, and to his country, that he deserves to be playing at the top level.

A lack of appearances for Rangers have hurt Grezda’s international chances and the 24-year-old’s career threatens to stagnate in the background at the Hummel Training Centre.

Despite reported interest from two clubs in Ligue 1 [Scottish Sun], Rangers couldn’t reach an agreement over Grezda.

With three years remaining on his deal, he remains a costly player to simply release from his contract.

As a result, the situation concerning Eros Grezda threatens to rumble on for a while yet.
