Umar Sadiq’s dismal display will encourage forgotten man Eros Grezda

Rangers striker Umar Sadiq has been widely criticised after a toothless display in the cup.

Sadiq was handed his chance to impress but the on-loan Roma striker played poorly and Rangers crashed out against Aberdeen.

Yesterday’s match marked Sadiq’s fourth game but he is yet to score. And judging by his performance, it is no surprise that Steven Gerrard rarely places his faith in the 21-year-old.

Instead of using the Nigeria youth international next time he rotates, Gerrard should give Grezda another chance.


Grezda plays predominantly as a winger but can also operate up front.


The Albania international usually represents his country in a central striker role and he has to be a better option than Sadiq at this stage.

Grezda will surely feel encouraged by Sadiq’s dismal display as it will offer him hope of more game time.

Since his summer move from Osijek, the 23-year-old has been limited to just four substitute cameos.

But now is the time for him to work hard in training and show Gerrard that he can be an upgrade on Sadiq.

Grezda will be helped by the fact that he can play on either wing, as a number 10 or as a centre-forward.

But his focus should now be to take Sadiq’s place as the main back-up striker to Alfredo Morelos and Kyle Lafferty.
