Liverpool loanee Ejaria's form has dipped of late with Rangers.
Ovie Ejaria's form for Rangers has been somewhat up and down. Struggling to begin with, the Liverpool loanee wowed fans in late August and for the next couple of months, but has slowly started to decline again.
The 20-year-old scored the all important goal against FC Ufa to help Rangers qualify for the Europa League group stage and also found the back of the net in the 3-3 draw with Motherwell.
His ability to connect the midfield and attack from deep was praised by fans and Steven Gerrard alike, who described the England Under-21 international as "excellent" following the first-leg win overt Ufa.
But in recent matches, the £2,000-a-week midfielder (Spotrac) has stuttered, which was evident in the 4-3 loss to Spartak Moscow on Thursday night in Rangers' Group B Europa League outing.
Ejaria, who was replaced in injury time by Gareth McAuley, was only sixth highest in pass completion rate - which WhoScored claim was just 72.4 per cent, behind the likes of Nikola Katic, Lassana Coulibaly and Alfredo Morelos.
It was a disappointing display from a player that is so highly-rated, but fans took to Twitter to express their desire to see their club sign him on a permanent basis - with the knowledge that he is struggling at the moment.
Ejaria is 20 years old ffs. Ofcourse would take him— Alex More (@AlexMore89) November 9, 2018
Ejaria - yes. Still undecided on Coulibaly. Started terrifically but form since injury leaves question marks.— Andy McKellar (@AMcKellar89) November 9, 2018
I think ejaria has been class most of the games he’s played for us— Adam Maclean (@adam19826892) November 9, 2018
Yes in Ejaria's case. He clearly has skill but like Kent is maybe finding playing competitively once/ twice a week & expected to win every game a new and challenging experience.— Colin A (@ColinA2911) November 9, 2018
Ejaria yes, definitely. With quality players around him he'd shine. His and Kent's footballing ability and mind are far superior to other Rangers players. Brings them down to the other players level I think.— Andrew Stewart (@AndrewStewart90) November 9, 2018
Ejaria has a lot of talent. Certainly worth a place. Brings more to the team than Jack— rob (@Red_River_Blue) November 9, 2018
