Rangers bound player struggling as concerning squad freeze-out continues

Rangers bound player Nnamdi Ofoborh is struggling as his concerning freeze-out at Wycombe Wanderers continues.

The Gers signed the young Bournemouth midfielder on a pre-contract agreement during the winter transfer window and he then headed for a second loan stint at Wycombe to build up experience ahead of his big summer switch to Ibrox.

It looked a good move at the time, as he had only made three substitute appearances for the Cherries over the first half of the Championship campaign but had played a big role in Wycombe’s promotion from League One the previous season.

The 21-year-old went straight into Gareth Ainsworth’s starting XI, playing three consecutive matches in central midfield.

However, he soon fell out of favour and was an unused substitute for the next four matches.

A handful of cameos followed, but since a 12-minute outing against Preston on 13th March, he hasn’t even made a matchday squad.

With the Chairboy’s not releasing any information to suggest that Oforborh is injured, it appears he’s simply dropped way down the pecking order at Adams Park.

The Nigeria youth international has missed fixtures against Barnsley, Coventry City, Blackburn Rovers and, most recently, Rotherham United on Monday afternoon.

It’s a big concern that a player Rangers have handed a long-term deal to is currently unable to make a 20-man matchday squad for a team rooted to the bottom of the English second tier.

Time is running out for Ofoborh to turn things around, too, given that Wycombe only have six league matches remaining in their season.

Meanwhile, Steven Gerrard has detailed exciting summer plans for a current Ibrox asset.
