‘No One Behaves Like That’ Gerrard Left Fuming After This Incident: £2m Down The Drain For Rangers

Rangers have made plenty of signings since Steven Gerrard took over at the club and the Gers could probably create two teams of eleven with new signings who joined since the summer of 2018. Most of the signings have come good and have helped Rangers close the gap on Celtic, but some have flopped big time.

One of those is Albanian winger Eros Grezda who has hardly featured for the club since his move last summer. The winger featured seven times last season, and he has been away from first-team this time around. Any hopes regarding a resurgence are as good as over now as Gerrard has warned Grezda he won’t play for Rangers again.

The tipping point was an incident where Grezda has been accused of spitting (The Express) at Ballymena United player Andrew Burns. Grezda is being involved with Rangers’ youth team so that he can keep up with his fitness and this incident took place at Tunnock’s Caramel Wafer Challenge Cup.

Gerrard’s stern words on Grezda incident

Gerrard recently said, ”He has been advised to find a different challenge for himself, and his representation is aware of that. We’re trying to be respectful and give him game time to keep his fitness levels up as there are still a few windows open around the world that may suit him.”

”However, if you behave in that manner you won’t represent this club at any level. No one behaves like that and wears the Rangers shirt. I need to sit down and speak face-to-face and get the player’s version of events.”

£2m down the drain

Grezda’s career has been in doldrums for quite a while, and now he could be outcasted further even from the youth team.

A lot was expected of this Albanian international who came in for a hefty fee of £2m. There were reports that Rangers were close to selling him this summer, but nothing materialised. After the recent incident and knowing the current situation of the player, Rangers might find it hard to recoup even half of Grezda’s transfer fee in the market. It remains to be seen now whether the club would take any further disciplinary action against him or not.

All in all, the signing of Grezda will go down as a disaster as he hardly made any impact even when he was in with a chance to play for Rangers last season. The winger was signed when he was already struggling with injuries, and it took him months before he became a hundred percent match fit. Hopefully, this signing will be a lesson for Rangers and Co to not spend on injured players as Grezda’s £2m has more or less gone down the drain now.
