Liverpool midfielder Ovie Ejaria has ended his season-long loan deal with Rangers and will return to Anfield immediately.
Rangers announced the news on the club's website, saying the 21-year-old had not settled in Glasgow and both clubs had agreed to terminate his loan spell with immediate effect.
Ejaria was dropped from the travelling squad by Rangers boss Steven Gerrard for Thursday's 1-0 defeat to Rapid Vienna that saw the club crash out of the Europa League.
Gerrard claimed the midfielder "didn't seem in the right frame of mind to travel to Austria".
A Rangers statement read: "Rangers and Liverpool have agreed to terminate Ovie Ejaria's Ibrox loan period.
"Ovie will be returning to Liverpool immediately.
"The midfield player has not settled in Scotland and wishes to continue his career back with his parent club.
"Ovie arrived at Ibrox in June and played 28 matches including 11 times in the Europa League, scoring twice for the Gers.
"Rangers thanks him for his commitment and efforts. Everyone at the club wishes him well for his future.
"Rangers also thanks Liverpool for their assistance."
