Rangers’ squad looks set to be bolstered – numerically at least – by the returns of three loan players before they fly out to Florida later this week.
Michael O’Halloran and Andy Halliday have been subject to most of the headlines surrounding the returning Gers but one seems to have slipped through the cracks a little; Joe Dodoo.
The former Leicester City striker has been on loan at Charlton since the summer but has been an unmitigated flop at The Valley and it’s clear now that the 22-year-old seems to have no future at Ibrox.
Dodoo impressed in fits and spurts in his debut season at Ibrox after he was signed by Mark Warburton from Leicester in 2016, but he never really showed any signs of kicking on to the next level and it was hoped the chance to go to Charlton and play regularly would help the Ghanaian kick on.
Unfortunately, the attacker barely played after grabbing a debut goal for the Addicks and heads back north of the border with his tail between his legs.
With Rangers looking to strengthen in the January window – and a number of promising youngsters in the club’s Academy – it’s best for all if the Gers cut their losses and offload Dodoo as soon as possible.
Regular football somewhere less pressured could help Dodoo move to the next level but it looks almost impossible that he’ll do it at Rangers any time soon.
