Niko Katic has lifted the lid on his exit at Rangers, and in typical Niko style hasn’t held back with the truth.
And it makes for worrying reading.
The fan-favourite Croatian, who Ibrox Noise was strongly against being let go, spoke candidly today about exactly the circumstances of his departure, and the story he tells is one of dreadful communication, poor management, and a disinterested coach.
The overriding message he gives is that he was eager to do anything the manager wanted, that the coaches wanted, and was ready to be a better defender for them and to learn their way of playing.
What he got back was silence, disinterest and apathy, something GVB never really denied himself when asked in a presser.
For whatever reason, he wasn’t willing to give Katic a chance, and with us now seeing a defence unwilling to jump, and conceding goals like they’re going out of fashion, we can’t help wondering if the Croat could have helped.
Bad communication was what Umar Sadiq especially complained of, and while that was different management, it’s the same problem.
Katic goes on:
This is a litany of wrong, and unfairness – not willing to give Katic any kind of chance and just not interested. What kind of defender does Gio like? Well, the fact the current setup is conceding constantly, never jumps, and blames each other, so it appears we know the answer.
GVB BADLY needs his men to stand up and be counted tomorrow otherwise Katic’s words will hit even harder.
