'Really good' - Rangers outcast makes surprise claim about life at Ibrox

Rangers striker Joe Dodoo has maintained that he has enjoyed his time at Ibrox despite his lack of games for the Glasgow giants.

The 22-year-old, who made only two appearances for the Gers last season, was a first-team regular under the man who signed him, Mark Warburton.

But since then his game time has been few and far between, and he recently joined Blackpool on a season long loan deal.

Dodoo claims that his time at Ibrox has set him up well for whatever the next challenge is in his career.

“It has been really good. It is a demanding place and somewhere that you need to win” he said, as quoted by the Daily Record.

“All the clubs I have been at, there has been pressure to win”.

Dodoo has scored five goals for the Gers, in his two years at the club.

Football Insider verdict

Joe Dodoo did show some flashes of quality in his first season at Ibrox, but ever since then he has been a bit-part player. It hasn’t helped when two successive managers, Pedro Caixinha and Graeme Murty, didn’t fancy him as a player and sent him out on loan and kept him in the reserves respectively. He must have been told similar by new Gers boss Steven Gerrard, that he wasn’t going to feature much this season, and that he is better off moving on for the season. Of course, Dodoo’s career at Ibrox might not be over. If he goes down to Blackpool and scores 20 goals, there will be a demand that he is given another chance with the Gers. But the chances of that happening seem slim, and more than likely his time at Ibrox will be drawing to a close sooner rather than later. He was a decent player, but probably just not good enough to make it with the Light Blues.
