EROS GREZDA could have played his final game for Rangers after Ibrox chiefs launched a probe into his behaviour against Ballymena.

The Albanian was part of the Light Blues’ Development Squad that made the trip to Northern Ireland for a third round match in the Tunnock’s Caramel Wafer Challenge Cup.

But he now faces an internal investigation after allegedly spitting at defender Andrew Burns in the second half of a 1-0 victory for Graeme Murty’s side on Wednesday.

The incident sparked angry scenes on the park and boss Murty - alongside coach Peter Lovenkrands, Ibrox legend Mark Hateley and captain Greg Docherty - apologised to Ballymena manager David Jeffrey.

Grezda has been training and playing with the Light Blues Colts in recent weeks as Rangers look to move him on after a disastrous debut season following his £2million arrival from Osijek last summer.

And now the 24-year-old faces showdown talks with boss Gerrard in the coming days as his conduct and future come under the spotlight.

Gerrard said: “Grezda has been told face-to-face what his situation is. He’s been advised to find a different challenge for himself.

“His representation is aware of that. But we’re trying to be respectful and give him game time to keep his fitness levels up.

“There are still a few markets and windows open around the world that might suit him so we’re trying to be respectful. But if you behave in that manner then you won’t represent this club any level.

“Just to be respectful, to keep his fitness up in case there’s a move in one of the niches in the market that are still open.

“We’re trying to be respectful but no-one behaves like that and wears the Rangers shirt so there will be a disciplinary situation. We will address it internally. But I need to sit down and speak face-to-face and get the player’s version of events.

“I’ve had some witness version of it so I’m aware of what’s gone on. We will deal with it internally but it’s something that I’m not happy with at all. There is no place for it on a football pitch, if he’s guilty of it.”
