Of all the players who Rangers loaned out during the summer, Joe Dodoo was perhaps one of the ones who did not leave the Ibrox faithful ruing the club's decision to let him go.
Dodoo headed for League One side Charlton Athletic, and unfortunately, his time with the Addicks never really got going. He would therefore be forgiven for feeling that his career is at something of a crossroads right now after he was selected for the under-20 side's clash with Falkirk rather than be involved in the first-team's tour of Florida.
And while Graeme Murty may be concentrating on what the players he is currently working with are doing, there is surely no doubt that Dodoo's display would have done his chances of earning a first-team recall no harm at all.
The winger provided Rangers' biggest threat during the first-half. The former Leicester City starlet gave the opponents constant headaches when he was running with the ball and he came close to breaking the deadlock as one of his impressive runs ended with him hitting the post.
He did open the scoring in the second-half in a game that Rangers would go on to win 2-1. The performance on its own may not bring him too far onto Murty's radar, but the signs are definitely positive.
Gers fans have seen what Dodoo can be capable of. His most notable contribution came in November 2016 when he scored twice with 10 minutes to go - including a stoppage-time winner - to help the side come from 1-0 down to win 2-1 at Partick Thistle. Unfortunately, the fact that it is probably the display that stands out by quite some distance tells its own story.
But perhaps his performance for the under-20s just hints that there may be the slightest chance for Dodoo to prove at some point down the line that he can be a success in the Scottish Premiership.
