Rangers reject Joe Dodoo caught the eye as Bolton Wanderers recorded their first league win of the season after almost going bust over the summer.
Dodoo was one of a number of players allowed to move on in the final days of the summer transfer window as Steven Gerrard tried to trim his squad and the former Leicester City striker headed for the Trotters – where his arrival was well-received by Bolton fans.
A 2-0 win away to Bristol Rovers allowed Bolton to record their first win since beating QPR on March 30th, before the club entered administration and endured a frantic summer.
After joining the Gers from Leicester City in 2016, the striker never really got going at Ibrox and only ever made fleeting appearances in the side before being shipped out on the first of a number of loans.
The striker recently claimed that joining Bolton wasn’t a “step down” and appeared to take a dig at the Gers after his disappointing three years at Rangers.
“Bolton are a big club and I don’t see this as any sort of step down,” said Dodoo, as quoted by the Daily Record.
“It’s easy to ignore what goes on behind closed doors but it’s my career and it’s not easy when you are not playing games, or you haven’t got the right manager or the right team.”
Keith Hill’s side was hit with a 12-point penalty as a result of going into administration and the win over Bristol Rovers leaves them ten points adrift at the foot of League One.
