The England under-18 international starred in his first league start for the Gers.

Rangers defender Danny Wilson has sung the praises of on-loan Spurs attacker Nathan Oduwa to Rangers TV after the latest in a string of impressive performances.

The 19-year old made his first league start of the season as the Gers swept aside Raith Rovers in a 5-0 victory.

Although unable to register himself, the summer arrival was a threat throughout the game and showcased more of the attacking flair he has already become renowned for in his short time at Ibrox.

“He’s been fantastic since he came in, he’s capable of winning games by himself… he’s that type of player,” Wilson told Rangers TV.

“But we’ve got a few of those in the team – players who you just give the ball and let them go and win the game… it’s a pleasure to play behind them.”

Wilson was speaking after yet another Rangers rout – they’re third 5-0 victory in succession – which saw Lee Wallace, James Tavernier and Barrie McKay put Mark Warburton’s side into cruise control before Martyn Waghorn converted two from the spot.

His words will excite both Rangers and Spurs fans, with the former eager to see what else is to come this season, and the latter keeping an eye on Oduwa’s long term prospects at White Hart Lane.

Making the grade at Spurs will be no easy task - with Clinton N’Jie and Heung-Min Son recently adding to the Lilywhites' array of attacking talent – but on the latest evidence, Nathan Oduwa has as good a chance as any over the next few years.
