Dodoo’s time at Glasgow Rangers was largely fruitless with two seasons away from Ibrox on loan but one of his former bosses said he was ‘phenomenal’.
Joe Dodoo, who joined Bolton Wanderers this month following his exit from Ibrox side Glasgow Rangers in September, has taken to Twitter with a message for his new fanbase following his debut for the Whites.
The 24-year-old was with Rangers from the summer of 2016, when he joined under Mark Warburton, and he made 27 appearances for the Ibrox side, scoring five goals and registering three assists according to Transfermarkt.
Dodoo spent two of his three seasons on the Rangers books away on loan, first with Charlton Athletic and then Blackpool, before being released by Steven Gerrard’s side ahead of the 2019 summer transfer deadline, a year before his Ibrox deal was due to expire.
On 3 October 2019, the 6ft forward signed a contract with Bolton until the end of the season, reuniting with David Flitcroft, the current Trotters assistant manager, who signed him for Bury a year before he linked up with the Ibrox side north of the border.
Dodoo made his debut for Keith Hill’s side on Monday evening, coming on as a second-half substitute for Dennis Politic in the goalless draw at home to Blackpool.
Here is what he wrote on Twitter, including some response from both some Bolton fans and some Rangers fans:

While he may have flopped at Rangers, Dodoo is highly rated in League One, with former Blackpool boss Terry McPhillips labelling him “phenomenal” in November last year after he had scored his fourth goal in as many games in a 3-0 win over Burton (talkSPORT).
