Glasgow Rangers: Fans fume over tabloid article about Cedric Itten - Rangers News

A number of Glasgow Rangers fans have slammed The Scottish Sun over an article that they published about the club’s new signing Cedric Itten.

In a piece which was also shared on their Twitter channel @scotsunsport, the tabloid ran with the headline that the striker got his first Switzerland cap by accident.

That followed an admission by his national team coach Vladimir Petkovic that, when he called the 23-year-old into the squad last November, the intention was simply to give him experience of being in the Switzerland set-up.

However, an injury to Remo Freuler eventually forced Petkovic’s hand and he brought Itten off the bench in a tight game against Georgia, with the ‘Gers new boy scoring a late winner and following it up days later with two goals against Gibraltar.

Will Cedric Itten be a regular starter for Rangers this season?

Yes

Yes

No

No

The ‘by accident’ phrasing riled a lot of ‘Gers fans, with some of the Ibrox faithful already having had a go at the publication this week over their reporting of a transfer story about Florian Kamberi.

These ‘Gers supporters took to Twitter to express their unhappiness over The Scottish Sun’s “embarrassing” headline, with one proclaiming that “Scottish football’s a laughing stock” – the SPFL has also had a bad rep among some Light Blues fans following the league resolution saga earlier this year:
