Ex-Ibrox loanee Nathan Oduwa makes confident prediction about Rangers' chances against Celtic

Rangers will 'smash' Celtic, according to their former winger Nathan Oduwa.

Tottenham Hotspur winger Nathan Oduwa has taken to Periscope to offer his support to former loan club Rangers, ahead of their match against Celtic next month.

Oduwa, 20, joined Rangers on a season-long loan deal from Tottenham back in August, and made a superb start to life at Ibrox with some dazzling performances.

The winger produced great moments of skill, ran at defenders and created chances for his team-mates during some outstanding early season form.

However, Oduwa gradually faded and became a bit-part player under Mark Warburton, and was ultimately sent back to Spurs in January.

Now out on loan at Colchester United, the youngster has been discussing his career on Periscope - and took time to talk about his former club Rangers.

Oduwa congratulated Rangers for their recent form, having opened up a 14 point lead at the top of the Scottish Championship, and hopes he gets a medal if they do win the league.

Oduwa also offered support to the Gers ahead of their huge Old Firm clash with Celtic next month - and confidently predicted that Rangers will 'smash' the Bhoys at Hampden Park.

"To the Rangers lot, you lot are ripping it up without me," said Oduwa. "Hopefully I can get a medal if you guys win the league. And Celtic, you're gonna smash Celtic! Rangers are winning that against Celtic, don't worry," he added.

Do you think Rangers will beat Celtic?
