Plenty of Glasgow Rangers fans are chomping at the bit to see new signing Cedric Itten in action for them after he completed his move from St Gallen on Tuesday.
Their appetite was further whetted by a video shared by Switzerland-focused football journalist Craig King on Twitter (via @FootballSwissEN) showing every goal that the 23-year-old has scored so far in his career.
Hey #RangersFC fans… 👋
Here is every league goal Cedric #Itten scored during his time in 🇨🇭 at FC Basel, FC Luzern & FC St. Gallen from the age of 19 until now.

Itten, who made his Switzerland debut last November and has three goals in two games for his national team, enjoyed a magnificent 2019/20 season with St Gallen, netting 19 goals in 34 league games as well as providing six assists. He overcame an injury-ravaged 2018/19 campaign to end his time at the Kybunpark with 36 goals in 63 appearances.
The compilation shared by King shows Itten to be a striker with a range of finishing in his locker, from pouncing on inviting crosses to slotting calmly past goalkeepers and diverting headers into the net. As per TransferMarkt, he frequently scores off either foot, as well as with his head.
Which striker are you more excited about seeing at Ibrox?
These ‘Gers fans on Twitter are excitedly awaiting his Ibrox debut, with one supporter calling him “Jelavic 2.0” in comparing his goal-poaching style with the Croatian centre-forward who scored 36 goals in 56 games for the club.
Somebody say JELAVIC 2.0 https://t.co/sAvEtDEoSe
