Warburton hails Rangers man's attitude

Joe Dodoo scores the second goal for Leicester

Mark Warburton has signed nine players for Ibrox side Glasgow Rangers, but he loves this one's attitude so far.

Rangers boss Mark Warburton has told the club's official YouTube channel that he loves Joe Dodoo's attitude.

The Gers smashed East Stirlingshire 3-0 on Friday night for their third successive victory in the League Cup group stage this season.

Andy Halliday opened the scoring from the penalty spot on 10 minutes, before Josh Windass doubled the advantage later in the half, but Dodoo sealed a comfortable victory in the dying stages by marking his Rangers debut with a goal.

The 21-year-old striker joined from Leicester City this week, and Warburton says that he already loves the youngster's attitude in regard to football.

"I hope you saw his pace, his willingness to come short and he shows a very composed touch," he told Rangers' official YouTube channel.

"He made a minor mistake, when he miscontrolled one [pass] but it didn't bother him and I love that attitude and he got his reward."

Dodoo was Rangers' ninth signing of the summer transfer window, but their only striker.

He comes in to compete with Martyn Waghorn - who enjoyed a goal-laden first season at Ibrox last term, despite injury - and 36-year-old Kenny Miller for the number nine shirt.

Regardless, the point is that Rangers forward line is in very good shape with three different types of striker in there, and it's that versatility which might well help them challenge for the Scottish Premiership this season.
