Rangers striker insists Gers have 'long-term plan' for him

Rangers striker Cedric Itten has admitted he made up his mind to move to Ibrox after his first conversation with Steven Gerrard earlier this summer – and revealed that the Gers have a “long-term plan” for the Swiss international.

Itten was one of two new strikers to arrive over the summer and grabbed his first two goals for the club in the 5-1 rout of Motherwell at Fir Park.

The former St. Gallen star was impressed with the Light Blues “enormous” ambition and appreciated the effort put in by the Gers to secure his signature.


“Rangers are a great club with an impressive tradition,” Itten said, as quoted by the Daily Record. “They play for trophies. Their ambitions are enormous.

“They made a real effort to get me and they have a long-term plan for me.

“When I first spoke to Steven Gerrard, he told me he had a clear idea of what my future would be. After that, I said, ‘I’m signing for them.'”

The 23-year-old could feature for his country when in their friendly against Croatia before a Nations League double header against Spain and Germany.

After that, Itten is line for his Old Firm debut when Gerrard’s side head across Glasgow to face Celtic for the first time in 2020, looking to extend their lead at the top of the Scottish Premiership.

With a couple of goals already, scoring the winner at Celtic Park would go a long way to helping Itten establish himself with the fans and really show what he is capable of.
