Rangers' Eros Grezda must kick himself

The Rangers manager has told the Albania international that his career at Ibrox is over [The Record] - and rightly so.

And the sad thing is, the door may not have been completely shut for the 24-year-old winger prior to this debacle.

 

Grezda is a left-sided winger and it just so happens that two of Gerrard's best players in that position - Ryan Kent and Jordan Jones - are both out of action through injury.

Despite playing for the reserves these days, the injuries to Kent and Jones could have opened the door for Grezda at senior level in a major way, but this incident has spoiled any chance of a reprieve.

In addition to that, Borna Barisic's resurgence indicates that Gerrard may have given him another chance to earn a spot in Rangers' squad.

The Croatia international, like Grezda, didn't have a brilliant first season after joining for similar money, but he has kept his head down and Gerrard called him 'outstanding' for his performance in the win over Feyenoord in midweek.

It wasn't over for Grezda in Glasgow before gobbing at the Ballymena player, but a completely brainless decision from him means that now it is.
