Lies about Niko Katic were exposed today when Hadjuk Split sent the Croatian back home to Govan amid claims about his time in his homeland.

The lies centred around his ‘struggling’ to perform and subsequently the Croats being unimpressed and returning him to sender.

None of which was even remotely true.

We checked his stats, and while maybe not utterly world class, they were good. 64% of all aerial duels won, an interception per match, one and a half tackles per match, and almost 4 clearances every match certainly suggests he did well enough, but more tellingly is what Split chief Mindaugas Nikoličius said about him:

“Katic is no longer with us, the compensation clause that the Rangers insist on is too big for now, he is returning to Scotland for now. This is not realistic for us to realise so far, we cannot enter into negotiations.”

In short, his loan club wanted to buy him, but couldn’t afford him at £3M, and Nikoličius also confirmed a player from Benfica had also had to return to Portugal on the same basis.

They liked Katic, a lot, but couldn’t afford the fee, so he has to return to Ibrox.

As for his future in Govan, as we said before he doesn’t seem to be part of Gio’s plans, sadly, along with another four or five outcasts.

Maybe the Dutch master will have a change of heart, but for now, he’s on the outside looking in.

But he certainly didn’t shame himself back in Croatia.
