Rangers winger Eros Grezda may have the chance to make his mark properly now, with winger Ryan Kent set for a short spell on the sidelines.
Grezda has been used quite sparingly so far by Steven Gerrard following his summer move from NK Osijek.
The Albania international was signed on transfer deadline day on a four-year deal, and has since made just three Premiership appearances, only one of which was a start and two other cup appearances.
He had his injury problems upon joining the club but has been fit for weeks now. He has been unable to get into the starting lineup in-part due to the form of Kent.
Daniel Candeias has been preferred on the right by Gerrard, and Glenn Middleton and Kyle Lafferty have also featured out wide on occasion.
Grezda’s time to shine
As reported by STV News, Kent suffered a hamstring injury against St. Mirren and will be out of action until after the international break at least.
That, in theory, provides a golden chance for Grezda to finally make his mark at Ibrox.
He’ll have to perform well, because Kent has been in great form in recent weeks.
The winger, on loan from Liverpool, has looked the Light Blues’ most dangerous player in a number of games recently, so Grezda needs to make sure he makes an impact.
He needs to try and be direct in the same was as Kent so often is and make things happen for the Gers.
With Lafferty also injured, the chance really is there for Grezda to seize and make the manager’s decision a simple one going forwards.
He’ll be hoping to get the nod against Spartak Moscow on Thursday, if anything to make amends for the brilliant chance he squandered late on in the last game.
