Rangers star Nikola Katic returns to first ever club with charitable donation

Rangers Croatian star Nikola Katic has made a charitable donation to his first ever club in Bosnia & Herzegovina.
The big defender was pictured visiting Stolac FC to donate balls to the club where he first made his name. The passionate centre-half clearly values the impact they had on his career.
And being back in the Balkans, he obviously wants to give a little back to those who helped get him to Ibrox.


It might only be some balls, but it’s a superb touch from the big Croatian. Katic spent 10 years at the Bosnian outfit between 2004 and 2014, before moving into Croatian football.
The centre-back would then join Neretvanac Opuzen before joining Slaven Bepulo. Nikola Katic would then join Rangers in the summer in a £1.5m deal.
And whilst Katic has already been capped for Croatia, the defender was actually born in the Bosnia & Herzegovinian city of Ljubuški.
But his footballing allegiances are with Croatia. The big defender missed the Kilmarnock match to prepare for the U21 European Championships this summer.

The club also sent their congratulations to the 22-year-old centre back for his achievement in making the squad.
And whilst he’s preparing, it’s a nice touch to check in on his old side and make this charitable donation.
