Fabio Cardoso has claimed that his Rangers team-mate Dalcio should replace Cristiano Ronaldo on the cover for FIFA 18.

The Real Madrid star is to be pictured on cover for this year’s EA Sports title, but Cardoso has tweeted out a picture of Dalcio, who hasn’t had the best start to life at Ibrox, cropped in his place.

Cardoso posted the hilarious image of the summer signing on his personal Twitter account on Thursday and said: “For me this should be the cover.”

Dalcio was signed by the Light Blues during the summer on loan from Benfica but the wide-forward has been sparsely used by Pedro Caixinha during the early fixtures of this season.

The Portuguese attacker is yet to make a single appearance in domestic competition for Rangers having failed to feature in a competitive game since the Europa League fixtures with Progres Niederkorn in June and July.

Cardoso on the other hand has become a key part of the Gers squad, forming an illustrious partnership with Bruno Alves in the heart of defence.

The centre-back was signed from Vitoria Setubal in the summer and has played every minute of every match so far this season, however he has only been a part of a side that has kept three clean sheets in eight games.

Rangers’ next test sees them take on Partick Thistle in the Premiership on Saturday night.

A big enough win for the Light Blues could see them take the lead at the top of the table.

In other Rangers news, this international midfield lynchpin is in contract talks after a summer bid from the Light Blues.
