Nnamdi Ofoborh Rangers Future Remains Unclear


Giovanni van Bronckhorst has revealed the future of Nnamdi Ofoborh at Rangers remains unclear as the Ibrox boss admitted he feels “really bad” for the player whose career has been put on hold due to a heart issue, reports Megasportsarena.com.

The 22-year-old hasn’t featured for the club after signing a four-year deal along with former Bournemouth team-mate Jack Simpson in the transfer window at the start of 2021. Simpson moved to Rangers immediately but Ofoborh remained out on loan at Wycombe Wanderers, where he was at the time from the Cherries, before arriving last summer.

However, former Rangers boss Steven Gerrard revealed at the start of last season that a medical examination had detected a heart issue which meant he wouldn’t be seen in the “short term” but the player didn’t feature at all last season. And now van Bronckhorst isn’t sure when he will feature, admitting he only appears at the training ground “once in a while”.

Ofoborh has been pictured on the pitch at the end of matches but, speaking to The Rangers Review, Van Bronckhorst said: “I haven’t welcomed him on the pitch and neither did Steven. He’s a player of course who had some problems – still has problems – and it’s a situation we have to be very careful about to make sure we make the right decisions for his health first.

“That process is still going. I don’t know what will happen in the future but for me the most important thing is health. He comes to the training ground once in a while and he’s still one of the boys. If you see him he’s very good with the boys and very energetic and happy. I feel really bad for him that he can’t be on the pitch but the most important thing is the health.”
