Rangers fan favourite Katic could miss out against St Johnstone

Rangers were relatively uninspiring at Rugby Park last Saturday.
A stand out performer was Ross McCrorie, who has subsequently been rewarded with a place in the SPFL Team of the Week.

Another positive, was the clean sheet.
It was a marked change from the shaky defensive display at the same venue, last month.
One half of the centre-back partnership remained, in Joe Worrall.
However, alongside him this time, was vice-captain Connor Goldson, not Gareth McAuley.

Goldson certainly seems to bring out the best in the Nottingham Forest loanee.
His best displays in a Rangers shirt have come alongside his fellow Englishman. For example, during the 0-0 draw against Villarreal and the 1-0 Old Firm win, both at Ibrox.
That’s bad news for fan favourite, Nikola Katic.

He had just started to out together a run of games, before the return of Goldson from injury.

Gerrard showed a willingness to chop and change his centre-back pairings during the first half of the season.
Yet, after a midweek off and on the back of a shut out against Killie, there seems little call for a change on Saturday.
Katic seems to be next in line at the minute, but it looks unlikely he’ll get a run out against the Saints.
