'Jeez' - Exclusive: McNamara claims Rangers happy to take financial hit on Ibrox international
Jackie McNamara claims Rangers will be happy to recoup anywhere near the money they spent on Eros Grezda as they look to sell the winger this summer.
The former Scotland international, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, admitted he was astounded by the £2million fee the Gers were said to have spent on his capture last summer and insists that those at Ibrox would be pleased if they could get most of that money back.
Steven Gerrard has admitted that the wide man is set for the exit door at Ibrox this summer, insisting that he has struggled to cope with the demands of Scottish football during his time at the club.
However, having splashed out a seven-figure for his capture, McNamara says that he expects the Gers to accept a loss on his departure.
He told Football Insider: “How much did they spend on him, £2million? Jeez.

“There’s a player that we’ve not really seen much of since he’s been there. I think if they can get anywhere near their money back they’ll be happy with that.”
The 12-cap Albania international played just 17 times for Rangers during his first season at Ibrox, netting two goals and chipping in with a single assist.
Injuries curtailed his campaign at various points, with an ankle problem keeping him out of action between December and March and a knee issue forcing him to the sidelines for the final weeks of the season.
