Manager of English club reveals what he's been told about Rangers 22-year-old
By Harvey Byrne
Charlton manager Karl Robinson has revealed that he’s heard good things about young Rangers forward and new loanee Joe Dodoo.
The 22-year-old left-winger, who made the switch to Ibrox just last summer was involved in a late deadline day move, taking him to the English third tier until January.
He joins Robinson’s side with the aim of impressing in south east London with Charlton currently sat in fourth place in League One after four games.
Robinson himself has also insisted that he’s been told good things about the Rangers youngster, claiming he spoke to “two or three players” that had featured alongside him as well as those that signed him for the Gers before making a move.
“Since he went to Rangers, he has not played much as a number nine, which is the position he wants to play in and the position I want to play him in,” told Robinson, as quoted by the official Charlton website.

“I’ve spoken to two or three players that have played with him at Rangers, I’ve spoken to the people that signed him, so four or five individuals. Their references were that “he’s a good’un and someone that not many would have picked out.”
Dodoo played in 25 matches for Rangers in all competitions last season, returning five goals and three assists.
He looked like a bright young starlet in a struggling team at times and Gers fans had high hopes that he would go on to be a success.
However, in the new campaign he has not played at all with the new signings of joining and he will now be hoping to stand out at Charlton before returning to Glasgow in January.
