After struggling with injuries in the early part of the season Eros Grezda has finally announced himself as a Rangers player in the 7-1 demolition of Motherwell yesterday afternoon.
With Daniel Candeias’ – rightly or wrongly – suspended for the final game before the last international break of 2018, Grezda was handed a chance to shine out on the right wing as Rangers looked for a big performance to get back on track after a sketchy period.
Grezda duly delivered, bagging a double in a hugely impressive team performance and that offers Steven Gerrard a huge selection dilemma when his squad comes back together after the international pause.
Can he really leave out Grezda after that two-goal display? Candeias has enjoyed a strong season and is a fan favourite but you are only as good as your last game and Grezda is clearly ahead on that score.
It’s a good selection headache to have and with Glenn Middleton deputising ably for the injured Ryan Kent, all of a sudden Gerrard has attacking options springing up across his frontline.
Grezda can offer his services up front as well, if Gerrard finds himself stuck for options there as he was for the Betfred Cup semi-final, but surely his manager dare not tinker with his role right now.
