Former Owl On Trial With Rangers

Former Owl On Trial With Rangers

Former Wednesday winger Etienne Esajas could make a shock move to SPL giants Rangers if the Dutchman impresses the Glasgow club during his trial.

Esajas arrived at Rangers to start his trial yesterday and it's believed that Rangers fitness coach Adam Owen, who worked with the 25-year-old at Hillsborough, recommended him to Rangers boss Walter Smith.

It would be quite a move for Esajas, who was deemed not good enough to earn a new deal at Wednesday by boss Alan Irvine at the end of last season.

He also had a trial at Charlton Athletic this summer but the Addicks also decided against offering him a deal.

Esajas will play for Rangers in a behind-closed-doors match against Partick Thistle at Murray Park today.

The Dutchman made just 28 starts in three years for Wednesday after Brian Laws brought him to S6 from Dutch club Vitesse Arnhem in 2007.

never understood why we didnt play him more, especially at home. Seemed to have a fair bit of talent with the ball at his feet. Needless to say he will go to scotland, admittedly a weaker league than the championship, and be the best thing since sliced bread.

He was inconsistent, that's why. He did get a couple of regular runs in the team and would play one brilliant game and then two average/poor games.

Would set SPL alight! I think he is one of those players akin (but no where near as talented!) as Cantona and only plays to his standard when at a team that will offer him trophies, medals etc? I chose Cantona there as he proved that when on trial with us I think! I think if Esijas went to Rangers he'd see champions league football, regular title challenges and trophies season in and out! Yes it is a lower standard of football but from what I saw that is my opinion of him? I think thats my Masters in Sports Psychology bought and paid for there and then!!

a cantona/hirst strike force......it still brings a tear to my eye what could have been. On a completly seperate issue, something has been bothering me, what the hell happened to ryan jones? young welsh lad from the mid-nineties, talented boy who vanished.

ryan jones got a bad injury and had to retire, very unfortunate cos he looked like a good player who was also a big wednesday fan who gave his all every time (I remember him getting stretchered off unconcious on two occasions from going for headers where the boots were flying). esajas on the otherhand was rarely played because he didn't train, he either sat out or stood around and for that reason he wasn't picked. unless he changes the jocks will give him even shorter shrift

Yeah i remember liking him, decent left foot if i remember correctly. Esaja's joins a suprisingly long list of disappointing dutch players at wednesday.

Ryan Jones tried to play again at Worksop Town at the same time as Chris Waddle was playing there, but he couldnt compete at Unibond level and left after about a year
