Rangers have recalled Cedric Itten from his loan spell at Greuther Furth to join Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s squad for the remainder of the season.
The forward was loaned to the Bundesliga club for the full season but his stay has been cut short.
Greuther Furth have struggled this season, sitting bottom of the table with just six points from 18 games.
Itten has started only seven games, coming off the bench on five occasions, and has scored twice.
The 25-year-old joined Rangers from St Gallen in 2020 and the forward has scored six goals in 41 appearances.
Rangers sporting director Ross Wilson said: “Gio was aware of Cedric’s profile as a player prior to the confirmation of his appointment as Rangers manager.
“In recent weeks, we have discussed the possibility of bringing Cedric back into the group and following a chat with him at the weekend, we have done just that.
“Clearly Cedric knows the club well, knows what winning here feels like and joins a squad that he is already a popular member of.”
Jake Hastie has also returned to Ibrox after a loan spell at Partick Thistle where he made six appearances for the Championship club.
