Eros Grezda ready to seize Rangers chance in Ibrox trio's absence

A general view of Ibrox Stadium ahead of the Ladbrokes Scottish Premiership match between Rangers and Hibernian at Ibrox Stadium on August 12, 2017 in Glasgow, Scotland.

The Rangers winger has been gradually introduced to the team by Ibrox boss Steven Gerrard.

Eros Grezda of Rangers shoots at goal during the UEFA Europa League Group G match between Rangers and Spartak Moscow at Ibrox Stadium on October 25, 2018 in Glasgow, United Kingdom.

Eros Grezda is ready to take his chance in the absence of fellow Rangers wingers, Ryan Kent and Daniel Candeias.

Kent (injured) and Candeias (suspended) will miss the Ibrox side's visit of Motherwell this Sunday, alongside long-term absentee Jamie Murphy.

 

That is likely to provide Grezda with a rare opportunity to impress, having played just 146 minutes of football since his £1.8 million transfer from NK Osijek in August.

And discussing the game at Rangers' pre-match press conference on Friday, the Albanian told the club's official Youtube channel: "It’s a really good opportunity for me because the other players who aren’t playing this game they did really well the last months, so I had to wait for my chance. But I think this is one of them.

"I really can’t wait for this game. Now I have to be in the places that Ryan Kent and Daniel Candeias are missing. It’s a really big game for us and for me, and I hope for the win."

Daniel Candeias of Rangers is seen during UEFA Europa League Group G soccer match between Spartak Moscow and Rangers at the Stadion Spartak in Moscow, Russia on November 08, 2018.

Though Grezda's introduction to the Rangers team has been a gradual one, he has appeared in all but two of Steven Gerrard's side's fixtures since the international break.

The 23-year-old made his first start for his new employers in last weekend's 2-0 win at St Mirren, although he was withdrawn before either of Rangers' goals were scored.

Can Grezda seize his opportunity for Rangers against Motherwell on Sunday?
