Rangers fans finally have something to cheer about with the sight of Niko Kranjcar regaining fitness and scoring in training at Auchenhowie earlier today.
The 32 year old Croat’s season was completely curtailed prior to the League Cup clash v Celtic in November last year, just as the creative midfielder was finally getting close to sustaining 90 minutes of play and hitting form. Sadly the ex-Spurs man suffered a serious knee injury in training and has had to make do with missing the past near-six months of action.
However the sight of the former Portsmouth creator back on the pitch and sticking one away in the onion sack will be a welcome sight for fans who desperately want some consistency on the pitch, and the attack-minded mid was a class apart when on form and in the mood.
The timescale for his absolute return to the match day squad is as yet unknown.
