Former Rangers striker Joe Dodoo still goalless at Bolton

After a month as a free agent, former Rangers attacker Joe Dodoo joined EFL club Bolton at the start of October [BWFC.co.uk].

The 24-year-old, whose Ibrox contract was mutually terminated on Deadline Day [Rangers.co.uk], was brought in by Keith Hill and David Flitcroft, who are attempting to rebuild the Wanderers squad after the club almost went bust in August.

Since joining, he’s made seven appearances in all competitions – five in the league, one in the EFL Trophy and one in the FA Cup [Transfermarkt].

He impressed in a first league win of the season away at Bristol Rovers last month, and he’s registered two assists to date.

However, his barren spell in front of goal continues.

Dodoo is yet to net for his new club, having failed to score in his final seven outings whilst on loan at Blackpool last season.

When arriving at Bolton, the player bitterly suggested that he hadn’t been given proper support at Ibrox and that joining Wanderers wasn’t a step down [Daily Record].

Yet, judging by his record so far in England, there’s nothing to suggest he was deserving of more opportunities.

Having joined on a four-year contract from Leicester City in 2016, Dodoo scored three times in 27 appearances and was shipped out on two loan spells before eventually being offloaded.
