Rangers are set to get a massive imminent boost as badly-needed defender Niko Katic inches his way back to fitness, and may well be available again inside a matter of two or three weeks.

The colossal stopper has missed a tonne of football the last 4 or 5 months, and was originally scheduled to arrive back in training around January, but thanks to a promising rehabilitation, the big Croat could be back in full Auchenhowie business before the end of the month.

If we’re being brutally worst-case, then next month would still be the benchmark, but his return to fitness has been on point and hopefully the former Slaven Balupo defender will be able to add himself to Rangers’ options before Christmas after all.

But of course, nothing is certain in football and we’d probably rather err on the side of caution by expecting him firmly come January, but you never know.

Either way, Rangers’ defensive options are very thin right now – with Leon Balogun always being a bit of an injury doubt, Edmundson’s suspension still running and Helander unavailable through isolation, Rangers will welcome Katic back with open arms.

Hopefully very soon indeed!

  1. Talk is Chelsea are wanting to send ex kid Billy Gilmorton on loan and rangers would definitely would be interested billy is a great player and would strengthen the team even more

  2. There’s a long way back for Katic once fit. He’s going to need games and lots of them to get back up to speed and it’s difficult to see where he is going to get them with 4 very strong defenders in place already.
