Sometimes, when a move doesn’t suit a player there is no point in pursuing it, and that’s exactly what has happened with Ovie Ejaria at Rangers. The on-loan Liverpool man has had his loan deal at Ibrox terminated, a decision which was confirmed on the Rangers website. However, instead of slating the youngster for his choice, the fans are behind him.

The 21-year-old midfielder won’t have left Rangers for his lack of game-time, no, the Englishman racked up 28 appearances in his half-season at Ibrox, including 11 games in the Europa League. Ejaria even scored twice for Steven Gerrard’s side, but it seemed clear towards the end of his loan that he was unsettled and there was something not quite right with him.
The game time in Scotland will have done him a world of good, but ultimately it seemed that the shirt was just a little bit too heavy for the midfielder in Rangers, as he stepped into the goldfish bowl that is Glasgow with his loan move. The chances are, Ejaria will find himself another loan in January, although probably to a lower league English club, as he continues to develop away from Ibrox, and the fans wish him all the best in his career.

If he can’t handle it at Rangers he’ll never cut it and Liverpool. That being said good luck to the lad. Hopefully he goes on and fulfills his undoubted potential.

Best of luck, you came you tried, doesn’t mean your not talented. It takes a special person to succeed for either side of the old firm, lots come, few conquer. Allows a hole grown to get a shot or special talent to take the place.

Good talent, just not ready for it.
All the best to him

I wish him well, scored an important goal that took us into the group stages of the EL. I’ll remember him for that and hope that he’s a success elsewhere.

None of the Gers are bitter about Ejaria’s decision and will be cheering him on from Glasgow as he looks to progress in his professional career.
