Rangers winger Eros Grezda has been one of this season’s big transfer disappointments and he needs to start making an impact, or risks being labelled a complete flop.

Signed by Steven Gerrard last summer from Croatian side NK Osijek for a reported fee of £2m, he’s gone on to make just seven starts in the first-team.

There are reasons for that of course, with fitness and injury issues being chief among them, but there’s absolutely no doubt that he hasn’t offered enough to the team considering his substantial fee.

He’s scored just two goals and although there have been brief flashes of his potential, if he doesn’t start proving to Gerrard he is worth more starts soon, the club may consider that he isn’t worth keeping around.

It’s not even that the phenomenal form of others has kept him out of the team either.

His best position is at right wing and while Daniel Candeias has had a solid season on that flank, he hasn’t been enough of a stand-out to be considered undroppable.

Now fit after an ankle injury, Grezda now needs a run in the side in our final five league matches to determine whether he has a Rangers future or whether Gerrard and his coaching staff should look to move him on this summer.

Matches against the top six will be a good test of his ability to help our campaign for trophies next season.

Do you think Eros Grezda has a Rangers future? Have your say in the comments below…

  • Grezda will come good, been hindered with silly injuries and just needs games, think we will see best from him next season.

  • Definitely believe….this guy has to prove himself and i honestly believe we will or might have players who
    are better workers…..ie…Ryan Kent, he is our number one winger,pray we sign him permanent..
    Jordan Jones, he is going to progress….Daniel Candieus he is better than Grezda,he works much harder than him.

  • Think if Injury Free and a Good Run of Games We will see a Great Player We need to Give the Player a Chance No Getting on His Back Fingers Crossed

  • Bin a bit of a let down , keeps missing good chances , but injuries not helping him . A run till the end of the season might help him , if not , let him go .

  • Grezda hasn’t become a bad player since arriving in Scotland. There are many circumstances why he hasn’t broken through but where do you play him when you operate the lone striker tactic Gerrard favours and there are others ahead of him in the queue? Play him or sell is the only option because he is better than a bench player

  • Grezda since arriving has faced a continuous battle against niggling injuries then fighting to get fit. I doubt if he has been fully match fit all season and he deserves an opportunity to prove what he is capable of next season after a full pre-season.

  • I believe crezda will come good. He’s unfortunately been hit with injuries. Give him a chance next season

  • Give the guy a chance in the last 5 games to show what a player he can be. A couple of good performances could give him the confidence to make his mark next season.

  • Think he will come good next season been unlucky with injuries hope he can be our Winger if Ryan Kent goes back to Liverpool I hope he doesn’t but can we afford to pay 7 million for him.
