Nathan Oduwa explains the benefits of Rangers' attacking system

Rangers FC Stands

The Spurs youngster has quickly established in the Gers first team.

On-loan Tottenham Hotspur starlet Nathan Oduwa has explained how the system under Mark Warburton has caused problems for opposition teams this season.

“The formation just allows us to go and do our thing and go and play, the way we play is not like we're fixed into any position, we can move around and we can rotate,” he told the club’s official site.

“Sometimes we see Waggy (Martyn Waghorn) play out wide and then come inside into his position and vice versa with Barrie McKay.”

While Rangers’ goal scoring exploits have taken most of the plaudits, their defensive work should be noted too.

The Gers have conceded just three goals in their first six league games and Oduwa cites the team’s commitment to possession-based football as key to this, with opposition sides rarely given the opportunity to threaten.

"So it (rotating front three) gives confidence to the back four that we're able to do that and we're able to create lots of chances.

“It makes sure that our back four don't have a lot of pressure on them when we keep the ball so it gives them confidence," he added.

The 19-year old has delighted the Gers crowd with his flamboyant and direct style but is yet to get off the mark at his new club.

His displays have been widely lauded, however, and that first goal shouldn’t be too much longer in coming.

Warburton’s men triumphed over Livingston on Saturday to make it 10 competitive wins in a row and maintain their 100% start to the season, and Oduwa looks set to continue playing a prominent role.
