Rangers loanee Niko Katic shares positive Instagram story

Rangers loanee Niko Katic was following the sides 3-1 victory over Livingston closely if his Instagram story is anything to go by.

Katic, who has joined Croatian side Hadjuk Split on loan for the season, shared a story to his 105 thousand followers of him watching the vital league clash, adding in three Union Jack emojis for good measure.

In a staunch post that will appeal Rangers fans, the Croatian has not been shy in his support for the side since leaving on loan.

Could he be back at the club sooner rather than later, however? With the side suffering a crisis at centre back recently, a recall option is involved in the loan deal which might still be looked at in January.

With Filip Helander injured, Connor Goldson in poor form, and potential African Cup of Nations call ups for both Calvin Bassey and Leon Balogun, the Ibrox side finds themselves woefully short of options at the back.

Katic may not be the answer to our current defensive problems, however, it would save Giovanni van Bronckhorst from dipping into the transfer market during January.

The Croatian has endured a stop-start career at Rangers. His winning goal in Rangers 2-1 win over Celtic at Parkhead to secure our first win at the venue in nine years will always be fondly remembered.

A serious injury ruled the 25-year-old out for the whole of the league-winning campaign last year, and a loan move was ruled to be the best option for the player to build up match fitness.

Whatever happens, he deserves another chance at the club and with our current defensive woes, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see him back in January.
