When it was announced that Nathan Oduwa was being loaned to Mark Warburton's Rangers FC side in the Scottish second division, a lot of Spurs fans were a little perplexed. Sure, it's Rangers: big club, Ibrox, massive fan base, etc., but it's still the Scottish second division. Isn't that a little below Oduwa's level?
Well, turns out it is. But that's okay, because it allows Oduwa to continue to do highlight-reel worthy stuff like this.
Just stupendous. Nathan Oduwa's brilliance yesterday in full. Bears & Spurs fans will love this. pic.twitter.com/b0dauJAMmC— Danny (@Danny_RFCACM) September 6, 2015
That's Oduwa playing on the right side of midfield in a recent match against Raith. Oduwa had two assists and won a penalty and looked pretty darned spectacular doing so. Look at that pass that set up the goal in that first highlight! Just wonderful stuff.
Rangers won the match 5-0 and have have started out the season 9-0 under Warburton, making it the best opening to a Rangers manager's tenure in the club's long and storied history. Oduwa has been a revelation for Rangers thus far, and it's even led some Rangers fans to wonder if they can possibly keep him at Ibrox permanently.
Nope. No you can't. But thanks for developing him for us this season and giving us some highlights to enjoy.
