Rangers have sent on-loan winger Nathan Oduwa back to Tottenham following an underwhelming six-month stint at Ibrox.
The 19-year-old was signed alongside fellow White Hart Lane youngster Dominic Ball in the summer on an agreement that lasted until the end of the summer.
He made a flamboyant start to his time with the Light Blues when he performed an acrobatic ‘rainbow flick’ on his debut at Alloa.
That piece of show-boating led to criticism from the Wasps camp, who labelled it disrespectful.
But he failed to hit the heights of some of Mark Warburton’s other summer signings and made just seven starts from 15 appearances, scoring his only goal for Gers in a 4-0 win over Dumbarton at the start of last month.
Speculation that he was on his way out of Glasgow was then raised when he failed to appear in either of the matchday squads for Rangers’ last two games against Cowdenbeath and Livingston.
In a brief statement, the Ibrox outfit confirmed the England Under-20 international’s early departure, saying: “Nathan Oduwa’s loan spell at the club has now ended and he has returned to Tottenham Hotspur.”
However, Oduwa showed no hard feelings after taking to Twitter to thank the club for the opportunity.
