Everything he did on the ball today was excellent. Every time he got it he was linking up well with the other players, well timed passes, nice flicks and rolls, a good cut back Kent should have done b

His pressing from the front and ability to hold the ball up was fantastic when he came on yesterday.  That's the second time he's done that. I like him, looks to be a shrewd signing. 

Was one of our best players

Minute I seen the team line up I though their left back must be small 

We don't play with out and out wingers anymore.....we play with an attacking 3.....Ittens first involvement today was to win a header in the middle of the park that went to Tav who was running up the right....all I ever read in here is we need a right winger....Gerrard plays a different system to out and out wingers....it amazes me that people who claim to watch the game can't pick up on this

You don’t think Itten was played out wide because the Kilmarnock LB was so small?  It was pretty obvious TBH.

He was put on the left back aye, but he wasn’t  being used the same way Walter used Lafferty at all. When he played out left it was on the left of a midfield 4.

Do you honestly believe Itten was deployed as a right winger today?

I believe he was played on the right of the front 3 yes, which is equally as poor as him being deployed as a right winger

We don't even play with wingers we play with wing backs

He’s earned his move based on him playing in a 4-4-2 and scoring regularly

We don’t play a 4-4-2 therefore he’s struggling  

Plain as day.

What have you seen that forms this opinion?

Not trying to be funny btw. 

I think he'll come good for us, maybe into next season or so, I've seen worse Rangers strikers in my time, the buff is the main man right now but things change and I've high hope's for him, just some of his touches and link play make me think he'll be decent.

He needs to be central in the front 3 for us and it seems like Morelos and him aren't going to be able to play together, so it's one or the other and play Roofe or Hagi

I never said Itten was being used the same way Walter used Lafferty.  I said Gerrard used Lafferty in a particular way when he first came back to Rangers.  It might've been Gerrard's first Old Firm game where Lafferty was stuck wide left on the Celtic RB and we were using him as an out ball for 90mins which was largely ineffective.  Itten was being used in that same way today.

FWIW.. I thought big Itten was good today, if we are going to use more high balls on a pitch like that Itten was good on the front line. He won plenty of high balls in the first half, way more than Alfie or Kent just because of his height. A good move by the gaffer to start him.

Off to Lisbon now and oddly Benfica do not play until Monday night, gives them one day less rest than us. Every little bit helps I suppose.

Exactly, which is why he needs to start showing why he’s the better option 

I really hope he kicks on I really do.

I think he will turn out to be quite a good player for us if he is played in the centre of the 3

Said it in another thread during the week, I would play him in european games and keep Morelos for the league mostly

To be fair he was played in a wide right position, yes. 

But you could see by the number of crosses from open play we wanted him to tuck in, especially when Barisic had the ball. I also think he was utilised so he could win the balls in the air and nod onto Morelos, as opposed to Morelos jumping for a ball with nobody in behind (as we naturally play with narrow inside forwards).

At times he picked the ball up in what he'd think is an unnatural position, but I still think he coped well with it.

I didn't like it
