Rangers centre half Nikola Katic has been congratulated by the Croatian FA for his strike against FC Midtjylland in Europa League qualifying.
The towering big defender is normally reliable with his head but also showed how good he is with his feet with a low, angled shot into the corner.
Katic’s goal was the third in the 4-2 win and his form continues to impress. The Croatian Football Association apparently agree.
As you can see, despite three players making the scoresheet yesterday the official Twitter account, the image selected is of Nikola Katic playing for his country at the U21 European Championships this summer.
This would also suggest that Croatia have an eye on big Katic for their next squad, which could see him add to his solitary cap.
Despite being born in Bosnia, the 22-year-old Katic made his Croatian first-team debut in 2017, coming on as a substitute in a 2-1 win over Mexico.
Unfortunately for Katic competition for places at the back has been competitive and he has been unable to break through into the side.
Despite going through several setbacks in the last year, Katic has bounced back to deliver for Rangers.
It’s certainly giving Steven Gerrard a headache over a certain £3m man.
