Adding Leicester youngster Dodoo to Barton, Kranjcar shows Rangers are serious – Warburton

Rangers manager Mark Warburton has stated that the signing of Joe Dodoo is a signal of intent ahead of the upcoming Scottish Premier League campaign.

Following their promotion, Rangers have been very active in the transfer market and recently completed their ninth signing of the summer in the form of 21-year-old attacker Dodoo from Premier League champions Leicester City.

Warburton is very excited with the arrival of Dodoo and has gone on to reveal that the capture of the young striker shows how serious the club are to return back to their glory days, after already securing such players as Joey Barton, Niko Kranjcar and Matt Gilks.

Warburton said: "Joe is young with great potential; an exciting talent, technically very strong, a good athlete and a good size.

"He will come in and be keen to make an impression and we're delighted to get him.

"We've got to strengthen the squad and add that quality. Getting the older players in like Joey Barton and Gilksy was fantastic.

"Now getting the younger ones like Josh, Matt, Jordan and Joe is encouraging too.

"What we have got to do is get the club back to where it was before but that won't be easy. All we can do is try and get better every day. If we do that we'll be there or thereabouts."
