Rangers should take what they can get for Eros Grezda and run

Ligue 1 side Brest have shown interest in Rangers flop Eros Grezda, according to The Scottish Sun.

What’s the story?

Brest join fellow French side Dijon in showing an interest in the Albanian winger, say The Scottish Sun. The 24-year-old is a man in demand then, though it’s kind of hard to understand why after last season.

The winger was signed for £2m last summer, but featured just 17 times for the first-team, scoring twice and adding an assist in an underwhelming campaign for the Gers.

Football Insider revealed earlier this month that Steven Gerrard is looking to dump five players this summer, with Grezda being joined by Kyle Lafferty, Joe Dodoo, Graham Dorrans and Jason Holt on that unfortunate list.

The gaffer has of course added several wingers to the squad already this summer in the shape of Jake Hastie, Greg Stewart, Jordan Jones and Sheyi Ojo. This improved depth is yet another reason why Grezda’s time is surely up.

Time to move on

Having only started seven times in a side that’s arguably gotten stronger since last term, thanks to those aforementioned signings, it simply must be time for Gerrard to move the winger on.

In Ojo and Jones, they have two wingers ready to go straight into the starting XI, while Hastie and Stewart are both proven in the Scottish Premiership, something Grezda most certainly isn’t.

Thanks to the interest from Dijon and Brest, Rangers have a golden chance to chalk up the transfer as a failure and cash in before his contract runs down and his value declines.

It might be a small hit to the pride of Gerrard after spending £2m on a man who has turned out to be nothing more than an overpriced flop, but it will also allow more pathways for youngsters like Hastie and Ojo to play and improve.

Selling Grezda makes sense for the player too, as at 24 he should be approaching the prime of his career, not warming the bench for all but seven starts. If an offer does arrive from either of the Ligue 1 sides, the Gers shouldn’t even think twice about it.
