Albania coach Alban Bushi believes “World Class” Eros Grezda should have signed for a bigger club than Glasgow Rangers.

The top rated winger moved to Ibrox from Croatian side Osijek just before transfer deadline in a £2 million move.

Grezda is in the Albanian squad for Monday’s Nations League showdown with Scotland at Hampden.

“When you look at just how talented Grezda is, we all expected him to move to a bigger stage than Rangers. He’s a player who can be world class,” the Express quote Bushi as saying.

“But I am sure he will be able to quickly prove himself at Rangers and knowing his qualities, he will make a big impact. He deserves a big transfer and I think he will do well in Scotland.

“He is a very important player for Albania and when he plays well, we tend to do well. Eros has worked very hard and I wish him luck.”

Steven Gerrard noted that Grezda was the main danger man whilst watching Croatian side Osijek, Rangers opponents in the second qualifying round of the Europa League.

Fortunately for Gerrard’s men, Grezda hadn’t recovered quickly enough from an injury to face the ‘Gers in either tie.

Once Borna Barisic joined the Light Blues, Gerrard grilled him for further evidence on whether he should bring him to Glasgow – the answer was a resounding yes.

Barisic couldn’t praise him enough, and vouched for his versatility, ability, speed and character.

Bushi’s belief that Grezda is destined for greater teams, will enable Rangers to showcase his undoubted talent in the current Europa group stages.

Once Grezda has proved himself, the benefit to the Ibrox club will manifest itself in the financial interest of the big guns.

If Eros Grezda proves Albanian coach Bushi correct, with his prediction that he will become “World Class”, then Gerrard’s signing is a masterstroke.
