Tottenham youngster Nathan Oduwa re-tweets assault comment after latest Rangers match

The Tottenham Hotspur youngster had a very tough match for Rangers on Tuesday,.

Tottenham Hotspur winger Nathan Oduwa has re-tweeted two videos along with comments suggesting he was the victim of particularly bad tackles for his loan club Rangers on Tuesday evening.

The 19-year-old has been in fine form since swapping Spurs for Rangers in the summer and he has already provided four assists in just 10 appearances.

However, against Livingstone earlier this week the Tottenham teenager was quickly singled out for attention and he was on the wrong end of a very poor tackle from Kieran Gibbon after just 30 seconds, who was lucky not to be cautioned as a result.

Oduwa was later felled by a flailing elbow and the teenager is likely to have left the field battered and bruised…and satisfied with the end result.

After the match a Twitter-user posted a video of Oduwa being felled in the match along with the caption, “This isn’t football, it’s assault,” while the earlier challenge by Gibbons was also posted and re-tweeted by the Tottenham loanee.

Such is his talent that the young winger is always going to attract additional attention on the pitch but on this occasion Livingstone’s players went too far and the referee really should have given Oduwa more protection.
