Rangers are ready to listen to offers for winger Eros Grezda after his wretched Ibrox debut campaign, Football Insider understands.
The Albania international cost the Light Blues £2million when he arrived from Croatian side Osijek but he failed to justify his transfer fee in a season marked by multiple niggling injuries and mixed form.
Ibrox sources have told Football Insider the club had high hopes for Grezda, 24, and felt he could provide the cutting edge from the flank they needed after Jamie Murphy broke down with a serious knee injury that kept him out for the entire season.
The lack of impact made by the wide man provided enormous frustration for manager Steven Gerrard and his staff, who felt he was the “biggest disappointment” among the senior squad last season.
The coaching team have no doubt about Grezda’s ability, but privately question if he has the mentality to cope with the fierce Glasgow spotlight.
Grezda made just seven league starts among 17 appearances last season, scoring just two goals, both of which came in a 7-1 league thrashing of Motherwell.
Rangers do not want to make a loss on the 12-times international and are confident they will not do so, as he has three years remaining on his contract and a sound reputation across Europe.
