Giovanni van Bronckhorst has spoken for the first time at length about forgotten man Nnamdi Ofoborh and admits the future for the lad is as uncertain as it is bleak.
Arriving last summer year from Bournemouth, Ofoborh hasn’t trained or kicked a ball in anger for Rangers due to an undiagnosed heart condition, and fans have been wondering what the situation is.
So Gio revealed it is far from good and he effectively has no answers:
Ibrox Noise were told earlier this summer that the lad had been cleared for preseason, but this was, sadly, incorrect, and it appears Ofoborh has absolutely no ETA at all.
This condition, whatever it is, clearly is very serious, and while the lad can evidently live a full life, it’s starting to look like he can’t be a serious athlete which places intense rigours on the body and heart that he cannot handle.
Why this wasn’t picked up in the original medical remains a mystery, and suggests a real blunder by Rangers’ medical staff. Equally though it was spotted quickly afterwards, and instead of Ofoborh potentially losing his life as a result of medical errors, they saved his by noting the aberration.
Unfortunately it means he cannot play for us any time soon, and sadly, it’s looking like he probably won’t play for anyone ever again.
