Mark Warburton comments on Tottenham loanee Nathan Oduwa's progress at Ibrox

Rangers FC

Mark Warburton has praised Nathan Oduwa for his display against Dumbarton.

Rangers manager Mark Warburton has told the club's official website that he is pleased for winger Nathan Oduwa after his goal against Dumbarton.

The Gers, who won 4-0 against St. Mirren on Saturday, added another 4-0 win to their name with a home thrashing of Dumbarton.

Goals from Jason Holt, Martyn Waghorn, Nathan Oduwa and a penalty from Andy Halliday gave Rangers a comfortable win over Dumbarton, taking them three points clear at the top of the Scottish Championship.

With Hibernian in top form, it's vital that Rangers keep winning, and Tottenham loan star Oduwa certainly played his part in the latest victory.

The 19-year-old winger is on a season-long loan deal from Spurs as they look to accelerate his development with first-team football in Scotland.

The tricky wide man has had an up-and-down time at Ibrox, either producing scintillating displays with a host of tricks and flicks, or struggling to get in to the game and produce an end product.

On Tuesday though, Oduwa certainly made an impact after coming on as a substitute, and having bagged his first goal for Rangers, manager Mark Warburton noted his progress in an interview with the club's official website.

"Nathan is a young player, he may be 6’2 but you have to remember he is 19 and they have to learn," said Warburton. "They have to learn to deal with success, disappointment and it is all part of your development as a player and your character building."

"He came on and scored the goal so I am pleased for him, he has a lot of work to do but everyone in that team has to earn the shirt and if he does that then we will have a very good player on our hands," he added.
