The Daily Record reported on Monday that winger Eros Grezda has left Rangers to rejoin former club Osijek on a permanent deal.
His only two goals for the club both came in a 7-1 thrashing of Motherwell in November 2018 (as per TransferMarkt).
His only involvement over the last few months has been in the Scottish Challenge Cup and an incident in that competition effectively sealed his fate at the club.
As reported by Belfast Live, Grezda allegedly spat at Ballymena United’s Andrew Burns during the Rangers reserves’ win in Northern Ireland in September.
Gerrard was livid after that incident, saying that the 24-year-old would not play for the club again (as per Daily Express) and sticking by those comments with his repeated omission of the Albanian from the first team.
These Rangers fans took to Twitter to express their delight at Grezda’s departure from Ibrox, with one lauding sporting director Ross Wilson over the transfer:
Well done Ross Wilson onto a winner straight away

Grezda was a disaster long before the spitting incident. Can’t even say I wish him well, because he disgraced the club.

Did we keep the receipt and hand him back to Osijek customer service? Faulty product.

There’s probably a talent in there but his attitude was terrible and he never showed up when he was given a chance.I’m glad to have him off the wage bill.

he gave the club nothing in return for the faith and investment it put in him.
