Many Glasgow Rangers fans were delighted with the performance of Cedric Itten during their 2-1 pre-season defeat of Real Madrid on Sunday.
The Gers were in action at Ibrox as they continued their pre-season plans. Before this clash, they beat Partick Thistle 1-0 and then lost to Tranmere Rovers by the same scoreline before drawing 2-2 with Arsenal and 0-0 with Brighton.
, However, even without a whole host of their star players available, 13-time European champions Real Madrid were still able to field a starting XI full of glittering talent. The Gers picked up the victory, though, thanks to goals from Fashion Sakala and Itten.
The latter’s display in particular attracted plenty of praise from Gers supporters. Itten has been in top form in pre-season, scoring three times (rangers.co.uk), and may well have earned himself a spot in Steven Gerrard’s starting XI for their first Premiership game against Livingston next weekend.
Should Itten start vs Livingston?
These Gers fans were delighted with the Switzerland international and they took to the social media platform to share their thoughts on the 24-year-old’s “superb” recent form, with one even joking that he might be the man Real Madrid will want to replace Bernabeu legend Cristiano Ronaldo.
Let’s see what these fans had to say about Itten’s performance
“Sakala is a player. Itten playing superb. Hagi and Lundstram been decent as well. Team looking strong once again”
“Itten is gonna do some serious damage up top as well”
“Cedric Itten is the Ronaldo replacement Real are looking for”
“Everyone rightly talking about Sakala… however absolutely delighted Itten scored again. Think he could be an important player for us this season”
“Right a few talking points and I’ll try not get carried away… 1, the new boys look like they have always been part of the team, Outstanding acquisitions. 2, Itten has found some form and his confidence is growing. 3, we are winning the Champions League!!”
“Itten is the GOAT”
