Nathan Oduwa compares facilities at Rangers and Tottenham

Rangers 3

Oduwa moved from Tottenham to Rangers on a season-long loan deal.

The 19-year-old has signed for Rangers on a season-long loan deal, moving north of the border alongside Dominic Ball, and he has compared his new club with Tottenham on the official Rangers website.

Oduwa said: “Looking at the facilities here, they are Champions League standard. Everything is top-notch and similar to what we have at Spurs, so I feel like I’m at home.”

Rangers certainly have the same infrastructure as a top European club, having only been in the Champions League a handful of years ago.

The club may have struggled both on an off the pitch in recent years, but with Mark Warburton now in charge, they can look to get back to the top of Scottish football.

Oduwa will be hoping to develop his game, as well as helping Rangers secure promotion from the Championship, and it is likely that the training facilities are one of the reasons Spurs accepted the move to Ibrox.

Considering the low quality of football in the Scottish Championship, it is a surprise that Spurs would risk the development of one of their star assets by sending him to the Gers. However, if they know he will be getting training at a Champions League standard, that will make up for the lack of competitive growth.

Oduwa is highly rated at White Hart Lane, and his move to Rangers gives him a chance to enjoy a full campaign of competitive action. The North London club will be hoping that manager Warburton can have the same kind of effect on Oduwa as he did on Alex Pritchard, who looks set to break into the Spurs first-team this season following an impressive loan spell with Brentford.
