I’m not usually one to panic but the early signs for one of Rangers newest recruits doesn’t look good.
Nnamdi Ofoborh signed a pre-contract agreement at the end of the winter transfer window – earning early comparisons to Glen Kamara – and promptly departed Bournemouth to head out on loan to relegation favourites Wycombe Wanderers, to say that the move has not gone according to plan is something of an understatement.
The midfielder has featured just eight times – playing 314 minutes – for Wycombe and in that time the team as a whole has scored just one goal, won one game, drawn one and lost the rest.
In the last four games the 21-year old Nigerian youth cap hasn’t even been in the squad, having to watch his side from the stand win two, draw one and lose one, they are now unbeaten in their last three games and are unlikely to change a winning team.
Rangers would have been happy to see Ofoborh heading out on loan in the hope that he got regular game time at a decent level before he came up the road to start his new life in Scotland but it will have been a concern for the recruitment team to see a future arrival unable to impact a team that is hardly bursting with quality.

We can only hope that he just isn’t a good fit for the Chairboys and that he is more suited to a team that controls possession through the midfield rather than bypassing it by firing long balls to footballing heavyweights like Uche Ikpeazu and Adebayo Akinfenwa.
