When Ovie Ejaria first arrived at Rangers from Liverpool on a season-long loan [BBC Sport], the signs were good.
Some fans were immediately impressed by the no.10’s languid style.However, the praise didn’t last for long.
Ejaria turned out 28 times for the Gers in all competitions but produced next to nothing in the final third.
For example, in 14 league appearances, he mustered just a solitary goal and the same tally of assists.
By December, the majority of Bears had had enough. After matches against Aberdeen and Dundee, he was ridiculed by the supporters on social media.In 16 league appearances, he again managed just the single goal, in a 1-1 draw with Rotherham. Alongside that, he produced two assists.
Overall then, a tough season for the former England youth international. He certainly didn’t prove the fans wrong after jumping ship on Gerrard, and he’ll hope for better returns if a further loan stint follows next season.
