Rangers fans have overwhelmingly voted to re-sign ex-Ibrox striker Antonio Colak, if the opportunity was to arise.

The German-born Croatia striker, 20, was sold against fan wishes by former ‘manager’ Michael Beale, and has struggled in Italy with Parma in a side/league which doesn’t suit him.

He has just 3 goals in 12 outings and is on the fringes of the Serie B team.

Meanwhile his record at Ibrox, whatever the noisy naysayers want to believe, was exemplary. 7 in 7 to begin with, then 13 in 14 as his time under former manager Giovanni van Bronckhorst shone before the whole team collapsed under the Champions League and injury.

And fans, responding to an Ibrox Noise poll, agree in his merits to come back to Rangers.

In the survey, of around 1700 fans, 1408 said yes to re-signing him if it is possible, while just 251 said no to the idea.

Of course, it is unlikely to happen – it was a gross piece of corporate negligence selling him, and now his new side would want a healthy amount of cash for him to come back – plus there’s no indication that Philippe Clement would even want the former Malmo striker.

So as much as anything else, this poll was more an indicator of how appalling a decision it was from Beale to sell Colak, because sadly we don’t expect the new boss to take much interest in the idea.

But if it was to be a thing, if Rangers were to try to make a move for Colak, the majority of fans, 84%, would be right behind the idea.

And you won’t be too shocked to hear that includes Ibrox Noise.

And there you have it.
