On deadline day of the last summer transfer window, Rangers allowed Cedric Itten to join newly promoted Bundesliga side Greuther Fürth on a season-long loan deal.

The German club have struggled in the league, having managed only 13 goals from 18 matches this campaign. Two of those goals were scored by the Rangers owned striker, who has made 12 appearances [seven starts] in the league.

Itten is one of only three Greuther Fürth players to have scored more than one goal this term. Despite the current situation, the Switzerland international is ‘returning to Glasgow Rangers with immediate effect’.

That’s according to Kicker, who explain the Scottish Premiership champions ‘made use of a return option’. In other words, Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s side had an option to cut short the 25-year-old’s temporary stay with Greuther Fürth so that he can return to Ibrox in January.

When describing the Rangers frontman’s qualities, Kicker claims he is someone with ‘good finishing qualities’ inside the penalty box.

However, for him to perform well, Itten needs service, something that was not made available to him regularly by his current teammates. This, as per the report, was the ‘problem’ for the Rangers owned striker.
