Katic pens Rangers extension

18th October 2019, 09:44 by Tom McGarry

Rangers defender Nikola Katic has committed his future to the club until the summer of 2023 after signing a one-year contract extension.

Croatia international Katic joined Rangers from Slaven Belupo during the summer of 2018 and has established himself as a first-team regular alongside Connor Goldson at the heart of Steven Gerrard’s defence this season.

The 23-year-old, who has made a total of 42 appearances for the Glasgow giants, has now been rewarded for his consistent displays with a contract extension and admits he had no doubts about putting pen to paper on fresh terms.

“I feel it is really good for me and four more years here and I think that will help me to become a better player, a better person and to help the club achieve something special,” he told the club’s website.

“I think it is a really good club for a young player, with this manager, a lot of fans and a lot of good players with experience from the Premier League and other leagues in the world that will definitely help me to grow every day and become a better person and a better player.”

Rangers moved to the top of the Scottish Premiership standings after thrashing Hamilton 5-0 before the international break and appear well placed to challenge Celtic’s near decade-long dominance of the domestic game.

The Ibrox-based club can consolidate top spot if they claim victory against Hearts at Tynecastle on Sunday.
