Rangers announce signing of Nwofor, Uzochukwu till end of season

Rangers International FC have announced the signing of former AS Trencin forward Uche Nwofor and former Chippa United midfielder Ugonna Uzochukwu in a bid to bolster the team for a surge for a continental ticket.

With the NPFL mid-season transfer window now opened, the Flying Antelopes thought it wise to make a swoop for their former players and sign them on a short-term contract till the end of the season.

Nwofor, who has ten caps for the senior national team, was on the books of Rangers in the 2010/11 season – a campaign in which he scored five goals – before he moved to Dutch side VVV Venlo. The 26-year-old has also played for a host of other European clubs – SC Heerenveen, Lierse SK, Boarvista.

AS Trencin released the striker in the summer of the 2016/17 season after struggling to hit the heights in that campaign as he managed to score two goals in 17 appearances.

Uzochukwu, in contrast, has only been to two other sides – Chippa United and Olympique De Khouribga – since he departed Rangers in 2014. The midfielder made nine appearances and scored two goals for the home-based Eagles in their CHAN 2014 campaign.
