Rangers signed Nathan Oduwa and Gedion Zelalem from Tottenham and Arsenal.

Nathan Oduwa and Gedion Zelalem have been excellent for Rangers this season, and assistant manager David Weir has told the Evening Times that they have been a credit to their parent clubs Spurs and Arsenal.

Weir said: “Both Gedion and Nathan looked like they are really enjoying themselves - they didn't want to come off the pitch at the end of the game - I don't know if anyone else has noticed that! He's settled in really well and they are only really young lads, so it's not easy, but they've been a credit to their parent clubs and themselves in the way they have acted and how quickly they have settled.”

Oduwa and Zelalem are two of the highest rated prospects in English football right now, and the loan deals away from their respective clubs of Spurs and Arsenal give the duo the chance to spend a full campaign playing competitive football on a consistent basis.

They are playing in a division, which, whilst not full of quality, is certainly physical enough to be a major step up in their development, and the pair are already showing they have what it takes to excel in the Scottish Championship.

Zelalem has played three games, registering three assists for the Gers, whilst Oduwa has shown his technical excellence with some displays of real trickery, assisting two goals in six appearances.
