Cedric Itten will leave Rangers in the summer if not given playing time

Cedric Itten will leave Rangers in the summer if he’s not been given playing time Giovanni van Bronckhorst, claims Chris Jack.

The 25-year-old Swiss international was called up by the Gers earlier this week from his loan spell at Greuther Furth.

Itten struggled to make the most of his time there and Jack believes that he will leave Ibrox permanently if he does not get minutes to prove his worth until the end of the season.

In his Glasgow Times article, Jack wrote, “If Itten ultimately swaps a place on the Furth bench for a seat behind Van Bronckhorst in the Rangers dugout then he will surely be on the move once again come the summer.”

Makes sense

There seems to be little reason why Itten was chosen to return to Ibrox mid season.

Last term, he didn’t prove his worth under Steven Gerrard and failed to live up to his billing in the Bundesliga as well.

Under Giovanni van Bronckhorst, it seems preposterous to assume that he will suddenly hit the ground running.

There’s a very good chance that his game time here is going to be limited so if he’s come under the impression of being a regular then he surely can forget about it.

These probably are his final few months at the club and he should be up for proving his worth as that could land him a decent team this summer.

For van Bronckhorst, it gives him another option in the final third, but Itten is unlikely to be ahead of Alfredo Morelos, Ryan Kent or even Kemar Roofe in the pecking order.
