Rangers manager Steven Gerrard has told The Scottish Sun that he has said to Eros Grezda that he can leave Ibrox.

Gerrard has also said that he is giving the 24-year-old - who can operate as a winger or as an attacking midfielder - some minutes so that the Albania international can maintain his fitness.

Gerrard told The Scottish Sun about Grezda’s future: “Grezda’s been told what his situation is. He’s been advised to find a different challenge for himself. His representation is aware of that.

“But we’re trying to give him game time to keep his fitness levels up. There are a few niche markets and windows open around the world that might suit him.”

Controversy

Grezda has been hitting the headlines recently for the wrong reasons. According to The Scottish Sun, the 24-year-old has been accused of spitting while playing for the Rangers Colts against Ballymena on Wednesday.

Rangers manager Gerrard has suggested to The Scottish Sun that the attacking player will not play for the club again following the incident.

Disappointing Rangers spell

Grezda has been on the books of Rangers since the summer of 2018 when he joined from Osijek for a transfer fee reported by The Scottish Sun to be worth £2 million.

The Albania international failed to do much of note last season, and Rangers have enough attack-minded players in their squad now and will not miss the 24-year-old.
