It must be said Cedric Itten’s football career has turned into an absolute nightmare.
Formerly top scorer at St Gallen and a Swiss international, the 25-year old hit the new low of being removed at half time for the B side v Celtic recently, and we have to say, his fall from valuable squad member who could do a turn into hapless attacker who can’t get a break in his career is as sad as it is sudden.
This is someone who had one in 2 in his homeland, and while he was a surprise addition, fans trusted Steven Gerrard in choosing him over Lyndon Dykes.
Unfortunately, he could never usurp Alfredo Morelos, and while he had a keen eye for goal, aside a small burst of form halfway through his first season, he has seriously struggled at Ibrox.
Disappointingly, it got even worse in Germany as he hooked up with Furth, who turned out to be the worst side the Bundesliga had ever had, and Rangers made the call to bring him back.
Depressingly, he’s not even half the squad member he was first time around, and we really don’t know where he can possibly go from here.
It seems clear he’s not going to make it at Rangers, and the weight of the shirt was just too heavy.
Cedric needs a solid sized club, a less demanding one, in a solid league – a St Gallen, say, in Switzerland, because he needs his confidence back.
There is a striker in there, and quite a goal sharp one, but that striker cannot carry our shirt and we’d be very surprised if he’s not a mutual consent come the summer.
