It always happens doesn’t it.

A Rangers player heads out on loan and then they score in their first game. This time, it’s Cedric Itten, on his debut in a friendly for Greuther Furth.

The 24-year old Switzerland international made the move after failing to secure a more regular starting slot under Steven Gerrard, although he will always be fondly remembered for helping to get his side over the line in a couple of games against Motherwell.

The versatile forward said on his move to the Bundesliga side:

“I believe that in Fürth I will find exactly the conditions to develop myself as best as possible, with the impressions from the conversations and what I have already heard about Fürth, it was my absolute wish to come to Fürth.”

There is a recall option in the deal as well as – according to the German’s – an option to buy clause, with the fee believed to be more than we originally payed St Gallen for his services according to the Heart and Hand podcast.

If there is one thing that makes your job easier as a striker it’s getting a goal on your debut, the opposite happened at Rangers though as he found chances few and far between sitting behind Kemar Roofe and Alfredo Morelos in the queue for the central forward role.

He has shown, in flashes, that he can be a good player; capable of passing high, creating chances and of scoring a variety of goals, unfortunately, he won’t be doing it at Ibrox, unless he continues the way he has started.
