Harry Forrester is of the opinion that his new Rangers team-mate Niko Kranjcar still has a lot to offer at Ibrox.

The former Croatian international, who joined Rangers on a two-year deal from New York Cosmos in the summer, has thus far made eight appearances in all competitions for the Scottish giants, scoring twice and setting up as many goals.

Kranjcar’s latest appearance for Rangers came at the weekend when he was introduced as a second half substitute by Gers boss Mark Warburton in the club’s 2-1 Scottish Premiership win over Motherwell.

And Forrester, who was pleased with Kranjcar’s performance against the Steelmen at Ibrox, thinks the former Tottenham Hotspur and Queens Park Rangers man will bring more to the table once he becomes fully fit.

“The gaffer has said from day one what Niko brings”, Forrester was quoted as saying by the Herald Scotland.


“He did very well when he came on. Like the gaffer says, it is a squad game. He normally likes to make two subs after an hour and the two boys who have come on have done well. It is a positive for everyone.

“Niko is doing his work to get fit. He got half an hour on Saturday which is good. We know what Niko brings.

"Everyone knows the quality of Niko Kranjcar.”

Kranjcar, who earned 81 caps for Croatia between 2004 and 2013, is yet to score a goal or provide an assist for Rangers in the league.
