Rangers manager Steven Gerrard has said that he is disappointed with the decision taken by young midfielder Ovie Ejaria, who has decided against staying at the Scottish Premiership club despite making 28 appearances this season. The player has helped his side to get to the leader’s position in the league table but said he is unsettled at the Glasgow club and has now returned to Liverpool.
The Rangers manager brought the 21-year-old player into the side in summer along with 10 other players to revamp his side from his former club Liverpool on loan. However, regarding the departure of the young ace, the former Liverpool great said, “I’d like to thank Liverpool for the opportunity to have him here for half the season. Am I disappointed he’s gone? Yes. Do I think it’s the right decision? No, because I think he had an incredible opportunity here.”
He added, “But I’m never going to stand in a player’s way who is not happy and who is not settled because I have people who are desperate to wear the shirt and who would run through brick walls to wear it. It is what it is. I have to accept the decision. I’m sad about it, I wish him all the best. He’s a nice kid, very quiet. He told me it was 100 per cent football reasons and I have [to] respect that.”
