Rangers striker Joe Dodoo has told the club’s official website it was fantastic to bag a goal on his debut.

The 21-year-old became the ninth signing to arrive at Ibrox this summer when he completed a move from Leicester City.

He made his debut on Friday evening as he was brought on as a 60th minute substitute in the BetFred Cup clash with East Stirlingshire.

It proved to be a dream debut too as he bagged his side’s third goal in the comfortable 3-0 win for Mark Warburton’s side.

And reacting to his maiden strike, he says it was fantastic to score on his debut.

“It’s fantastic to score on my debut,” he told the club’s official website.

“It was good to get minutes today in my first game and it was really good getting to know my teammates, enjoy the game and to get a goal and a win is fantastic.”

Rangers fans will now be hoping that Dodoo can build on this positive start and enjoy a big campaign next year.

The young striker is highly rated, hence why Mark Warburton moved so quickly to secure his signature, and this start will have fans eagerly anticipating his future.

He faces a fight to get into the first team at present though, but a goal on his debut was the perfect manner in which to stake a claim.
