Rangers star Clark says Nathan Oduwa has stood up to pressure of playing for Tottenham

Rangers signed Tottenham youngster Oduwa on loan over the summer.

Oduwa arrived at Ibrox over the summer on a loan deal, and Rangers star Nicky Clark has told the Herald that he has taken the pressure of playing for such a big club in his stride.

Clark said: “He has come up from down south, where there is a lot of pressure on him given the club he is at [Spurs]. He has taken it in his stride and is a great talent to watch He has definitely got that character about him. He is mentally strong.”

Oduwa has established himself as a key player at Ibrox since his move north of the border, playing 13 games and registering four assists.

However, he has come under some criticism from opposing players and managers for his style of play, which involves a number of tricks and skilful moves to utilise his great talent.

He has been criticised, and this has now moved onto the field of play, with opposing defenders not being easy on the youngster when tackling him.

Many young players could find this situation one they do not want to play in, but Clark believes Oduwa has the mental strength required to not only work his way through this, but actually improve because of it.

He is not going to stop his exceptional play any time soon, and Clark has suggested that it is because he has come from Spurs that he has been able to play through the pressure. Playing for such a big club means that he has the mental strength to overcome any issues which may face him, and many believe that Oduwa has all the qualities required to become a success at White Hart Lane in the future.
