Antonio Colak will be a Rangers player within 48 hours after it was confirmed the German-born Croat striker will take his medical today in Glasgow and will fly out tomorrow to catch the tail end of the Portuguese camp, likely being on the bench for the friendly with Sunderland at the weekend.

Colak, 28, is in good form off the back of superb spells in Sweden (19 goals 3 assists in 40) and Croatia (51 goals and 15 assists in 90) despite his indifferent period in Greece, and the forward sees Rangers as the right club for him to be at now moving forward.

For those wondering about his poor record in the Mediterranean, he was only a fringe player for them – despite signing in fanfare, it was just the wrong club at the wrong time, and if you need any proof of his quality, he nearly switched to Nantes from Rijeka rather than Greece, as the French Ligue 1 side hit advanced negotiations with the Croat side.

That one fell through and it was Salonika he went to – wrong club, wrong country, wrong time.

We saw how strong he was in Sweden, which was DURING his time in Greece – those slating him for being poor for PAOK overlook that he was loaned out during that time and racked up the goals in the Swedish top flight, including 5 goals in UCL qualifying.

In other words Greece didn’t suit him, for whatever reason, but every other notable club he’s been at he’s been impressive for.

So if ever ‘give him a chance’ applied, it’s here.

This guy is a striker, and hopefully we’ll see the very best of Colak.
