Rangers loanee Cedric Itten has claimed his move away from Ibrox has reignited his career, earning himself a call up to the Swiss national team.

After impressing in pre-season with goals against Arsenal and Real Madrid, the Swiss striker was called upon to contribute to the Rangers frontline as the reigning Champions looked to kick start their season in the right manner.

However, he failed to make an impact in several appearances from the bench and with the return of prolific goalscorer Alfredo Morelos, he was shipped on loan to Bundesliga side Greuther Furth.

Appearing in four matches so far, the 24-year-old made a name for himself just over a week ago, scoring a consolation in his sides’ 3-1 defeat to German champions Bayern Munich. Itten believes this goal played an integral part as he received his first call up for nearly a year.

Speaking to Swiss television channel, SRF, he said: "The call-up was pleasant news, it's always very nice when a coach believes in you.

"I think the goal scored against Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga was decisive.

"Ultimately I am playing quite regularly and I have also found the way to the goal. Everything is a consequence of what has been done.

"I'm happy to be back here and I'll try to enjoy these moments.

"I was very happy to see the boys again. It is a great honour to be part of this.

"It's another type of football (in Germany), which looks more like Switzerland. It's a lot harder there."
