Alloa defender Colin Hamilton says Nathan Oduwa was ‘taking the piss’ on his Rangers debut on Sunday afternoon.

The Spurs youngster signed for the Ibrox club on Friday evening and made an impressive debut in the 5-1 win, but Hamilton has criticized the midfielder for attempting a ‘rainbow flick’ in the dying moments.

“I felt as if he was taking the piss,” said Hamilton.

“Was there any need for it? There was so many Rangers fans behind that goal and he was trying to make a name with them by trying a wee trick when he was 5-1 up.

“I’m sure there are other left-backs and centre-backs that, if he tried that again, maybe won’t let him get away with it.”

Gers boss Mark Warburton has jumped to the 19-year-old’s defence, however, claiming sheer joy at being on the pitch was behind his exuberance.

“There’s no lack of respect intended, absolutely not,” he said.

“He’s just enjoying his football. He’s come up to play. It’s frustrating when you’re a younger player at a big club and not getting in the first team.

“We’ll have a quiet word. He’s a very respectful young guy. I’ve no doubt he’ll make an impression – for all the right reasons.”

When asked about Oduwa’s extravagent rainbow flick attempt, Warburton smiled, “I’m not always a big fan of that! But you’ve got to hope you develop a real talent – and he’s a talent!”
