PHOTO: Rangers new boy stands out…

Rangers’ new boy Nikola Katic finally joined the lads in Spain yesterday having completed his move from Slaven Balupo, and the Croat giant wasted no time getting stuck in.

The 21-year old titan is nearly 6ft 5 and must be close to the tallest player plying his trade in the SPL, never mind at Ibrox, and as this photo shows, absolutely towers over the other players, particularly poor Serge Atakayi who still comes in at a fairly respectable 5ft 7.

The new Rangers defender was put through his paces in Malaga with the usual kind of running and transition drills, but given he stated he enjoys duals and the physical side of the game, plus aerial domination, it is not hard to see why this lad could be a very fine signing if he adjusts to the rigours of the SPL.

The Croatian international is head and shoulders (literally) above the rest of the squad and if Rangers fans have been waiting for a defensive colossus who could soak up the majority of high balls, Katic could well be our man.

His partner, former Brighton stopper Connor Goldson weighs in at a rather hefty 6ft 3 himself which really is quite a tall pairing to say the least, and Rangers fans can start to feel a little more at ease with the calibre of defenders back there.

  1. I think we have signed 2 excellent young and hungry CHs who will excel in the SPFL and hopefully Europe. Ithink they see the opportunity to develop and enhance their reputation and value …I think both could be regular Internationals too.

  2. It’s hard not to be excited at the thought of K & C teaming up and bossing the defence. Add to that Shagger in goals and Tav or Flannigan and John what a fucking defence that 👌

    Defo put the fear in any striker facing them some size of units and won’t be bullied 👊💥 🔴⚪️🔵

  3. Absolutely Buzzin at The Activity Since we got Gerrard! 😀👍

    Dont Agree with Signing Flanagan Tho! 😒

    Think it should be …

    Gks – Shagger, Alnwick
    RBs – Tav, Not Flanagan
    CBs – Goldson, Katic, Bartley, Adarabioyo, A.Wilson
    LBs – John, Wallace
    CDMs – Rossiter, Jack, McCrorie
    RMs – Candeias, Atakayi
    CMs/CAMs –
    Docherty, Dorrans, Ejaria, Windass, Barjonas etc
    LMs – Murphy, Middleton
    STs – Morelos, McBurnie, ST3 , Hardie

    • Not a bear in the land that isn’t buzzing with the start so far. The Gaffer and his staff seem to be hitting the ground running ( no pun intended ).

      Stevo the reason for Flannigan is that because of his past? I’m not condoning his actions, I’ve never personally laid a finger on a woman ever. That said I made a huge mistake once and I learned from it.

      By all accounts he’s shown remorse for his actions and wants to continue his career, I’d be more concerned if he hadn’t shown remorse and the strength to continue..

      The abuse he would get from other supporters would be brutal but he’s willing to accept that Stevo mate..One of the most gifted to ever play in a Rangers jersey also had his troubles but we stuck by him – Gaza..

      Going to be some pre season this that’s for sure onwards & upwards 👍

    • Yeah its Because its his "Past"
      I know hes shown Remorse but hes still a Woman-Beater

      I know Gazza had problems but their is a huge difference between Gazza and Flannigan …JS 👍⚽
