If you remember back to mid-July, there were rumours swirling that Rangers were interested in Dinamo Zagreb’s 22-year-old attacking midfielder Amer Gojak.

According to reports in Croatia [Croatian Football News], Rangers were interested in the six-times capped Bosnia & Herzegovinian midfielder.

But now the £13.5m price tag attached to the player looks a bargain – Gojak scored an absolute worldie to help the Croatian side to the Champions League this season.

Champions League qualification is met with an automatic £13.75m, with extra money awarded for match results and television.

It’s a massive boost to the Croatian clubs coffers and Gojak will take many of the plaudits after scoring in the away leg in Rosenborg.

Leading the first leg 2-0 from Croatia, Dinamo travelled to Norway knowing an away goal would all but kill the tie.

But the Norwegian champions took an early lead, unsettling the Balkans side.

But with 20 minutes to go, that man Gojak – a talisman for Dinamo – popped up to secure the victory and ensure Dinamo qualified for the Champions League for the first time since 1999/2000.

It shows why Rangers were interested in the highly rated midfielder, but you get the feeling we were priced out of any move.

Rangers were said to be interested in Gojak after a reported scouting mission at the Croatian Super Cup Final [Daily Record] in the summer.
