Rangers striker Cedric Itten has called his move to Glasgow the “biggest challenge” he has faced so far but is confident 2021/22 will be “easier” for him.
The Swiss star struggled to force his way into the starting XI but was a regular from the bench as Steven Gerrard’s side romped to the Scottish Premiership title.
Despite his limited starts for Rangers playing a part in costing him his place in the Switzerland squad – and ultimately a spot at Euro 2020 – Itten is looking to take the positives from his struggles since moving to Scotland.
“Of course it’s a shame I will miss the Euros,” Itten said.
“But there’s nothing I can do to change it and I have to try and draw positives from it.
“I always try to do that…even in the last few months.
“I’ll be watching the Euros of course.
Moving to Glasgow has definitely been the biggest challenge I have faced so far.
“Everything has been really complicated because it’s obviously an exceptional situation.
“But we have managed to move into a home under these difficult conditions and next year should be easier for me.”
The Swiss striker only started five games for the Gers among his 38 appearances last season, contibuting with six goals and three assists.
With the arrival of Fashion Sakala at Rangers this summer, competition for a starting place will be even tougher so Itten will have to hope his second season is “easier” than his first.
