Glasgow Rangers are safely into the third round of Europa League qualifying after they beat Lincoln Red Imps on Thursday.
The Gers travelled to Gibraltar to face the Imps, and it was a fixture that could have caused them problems due to their plastic pitch. However, in the end they won with relative ease, managing a 5-0 victory thanks to goals from James Tavernier, Connor Goldson, Jermain Defoe and Alfredo Morelos – twice.
The absence of one man on the scoresheet will have worried Steven Gerrard, though. Cedric Itten was recently signed for £3m after scoring 19 goals in 34 league games for St. Gallen last term, but so far he has failed to score even once in five appearances for the Ibrox outfit. When named in the starting XI on Thursday, it was a fantastic opportunity to get himself up and running, but it was one he failed to take.
Have you been impressed by Itten so far?
The fans were far from happy with his display, and they took to Twitter to share their thoughts – one fan even called him a “passenger” whilst another suggested he was worse than ex-Ger Eros Grezda, who scored just twice in 17 appearances whilst at Ibrox.

Itten is a lump of wood & a waste of money. If we sell Alfredo we need better than that. Tonight’s the chance for him to show what he can offer & has failed miserably

Hope Itten comes good but he’s been largely garbage.

That itten is worse than grezda

Some of the most successful Rangers teams had one injury after another so maybe this is grounds for optimism. Main concern is big Itten looking so off the pace and frankly a bit lost so far.

Itten is another Herrera
