Adedipe ‘Honoured’ To Seal Rangers Move After Transfer Tussle (AUDIO)

Midfielder Kehinde Adedipe says he feels ‘great’ and ‘honoured’ to join Rangers following a controversial move from Rivers United.

After a protracted transfer tussle between both sides over his ownership rights, Adedipe eventually penned a 2-year deal with the Flying Antelopes that will keep him at the club until 2021.

“I feel great and honoured to play for Rangers now,” he said. “Because during all those period of struggle; playing for Rivers United and Rangers, Rivers United claiming they own my ownership and Rangers said I’m theirs, but all through this period, we were trying to settle everything.

“I thank God now that everything is settled and I’m glad to be back with Rangers.”

The former Sunshine Stars player added: “The people of Enugu should expect to see a new Kehinde Adedipe because I know I am home now to play for Enugu Rangers.

“The people should expect the best from us.”

Adedipe’s Rangers are campaigning in the CAF Confederation Cup this season, and will later on Wednesday, know their opponents in the playoffs stage of the competition when the draws will be conducted in Cairo, Egypt.

Last season, the 7-time Nigerian champions finished third in the NPFL Championship Playoffs in Lagos, behind league winners, Enyimba and Kano Pillars.
