Glasgow Rangers are ready to allow Albania international Eros Grezda to leave the club this summer, according to the Football Insider website.
Big things were expected from the winger when Gers boss Steven Gerrard took him to Ibrox from Croatian outfit Osijek last summer, but after a tough first campaign in Scotland, it appears they are ready to admit defeat on him despite recognising the talent he has.
A combination of the change in intensity of the football and a number of niggling injuries continually hampered the 24-year-old in his maiden season with Rangers, and it could be that he doesn’t get a second term with the Glasgow giants.
The Gers wanted the Albanian to fill the void left by the injury to Jamie Murphy last summer, but with him likely to be fit for the next campaign, it could be that Grezda fast becomes surplus to requirements at Ibrox.
The attacker made just 17 appearances in his first year at Rangers, with only seven of those coming from the start, in a season where he couldn’t find any consistency due to the injuries he continually encountered.
The Gers staff do not believe there is a lack of talent in Grezda’s make up, but there is a question mark over his temperament and mentality to be able to thrive in a city where the expectation is as intense as it is in Glasgow.
With that in mind, the Rangers hierarchy are said to be ready to listen to offers for the man who has 13 caps for Albania already in his career.
The Gers shelled out £2 million when they took the winger to Ibrox, and they are said to want to recoup that full amount when selling him, but should not have too much difficulty with that given the reputation he has across Europe.
