Nathan Oduwa praises Rangers fans and Mark Warburton but has one criticism from Ibrox tenure


Nathan Oduwa praises Rangers fans and Mark Warburton but has one criticism from Ibrox tenure

Rangers had the winger on loan at Ibrox under Mark Warburton.

Former loanee Nathan Oduwa has been discussing his time on loan at Rangers. 

Mark Warburton was in charge at Ibrox when the talented winger arrived on loan from Tottenham Hotspur. Rangers, at the time in the Scottish Championship, needed some X factor out wide and Oduwa certainly had that. 

A bag of tricks with exceptional pace, Oduwa initially shone but unfortunately, over time, his lack of end product started to show. Rangers ended his loan spell early in January 2016.

Despite the way his time at Rangers ended, the winger clearly has fond memories of his time in Glasgow. 

Speaking to the World Football Index, Oduwa, who now plays his football in Israel with Hapoel Hadera, declared just how happy he was to get a chance to play football at Ibrox. 


He also thanked Warburton for the opportunity, although also felt he could have received better guidance through his rough patch in Glasgow.

“I have to thank Mark Warburton a lot, because he did give me that confidence and that freedom to express myself without being scared, and at the same time do it in the right areas of the pitch.

“Every player has different form during their playing career, I just felt I could have got a bit more guidance during that time in my loan spell when I was not playing well.

“The fans of Rangers are amazing, and the structure of the club and the way everything is organised is fantastic.”

TBR’s View

Oduwa was certainly an exciting player during his time at Rangers but undoubtedly struggled when it came to the final third. 

Nevertheless, he was an entertaining fixture of the Rangers side at the time and fans will be glad to hear he enjoyed his time at Ibrox. 

Hopefully, he can continue to find success at his new club in Israel.
