At the end of the week, it was being reported that Rangers’ latest summer signing, Eros Grezda, had been sent back home from Albanian international duty owing to fitness concerns with his ankle.
The Daily Record reported that our £2million signing from Osijek had been called up to be assessed by his countries medical department, but with him not playing since last May following the injury he picked up on international duty previously, they deemed him unfit for action still.
In fairness, actual details that I can find are scarce and it’s no great surprise for me to see him not play given his lack of game time in recent months. Countries can call people up for assessment’s irrespective of what a club says so to me this seems more like a ‘check-up’ for their records more than anything else.
Just the record being the record!! If his injury was that bad he wouldn't of passed the medical!!! Crazy to have been called up but glad they saw sense and sent him back!!

He’s not injured, doesn’t article say he’s just not fit to play? If he was injured surely he pulls out of the squad himself?

With no game time, I fail to see how he was ever really in consideration for Isreal on Friday or Scotland tomorrow.
