Nikola Katic: Steven Gerrard a big reason why I joined Rangers

Nikola Katic Steven Gerrard a big reason why I joined Rangers

The Govan club announced the arrival of the 21-year-old Croatia defender from Slaven Belupo on a four-year deal. "It's wonderful and a really good step for me". "It is good to be here and this is a big step for me", he told RangersTV.

A former Under 21 worldwide, Katic earned his first senior cap in a friendly against Mexico last May.

'Rangers need to be in with the top European clubs and I will try with the other players to move this club to the top of European football'.

The Daily Star reports that Goldson is a lifelong Liverpool fan and the allure of working under Gerrard, arguably the greatest Reds player of all time, was too thrilling to turn down.

"Everyone has said they [the former players] did a good job here, and now I have a job to hold that tradition here".


Rangers agreed a fee in the region of £2 million for Katic with his Croatian club Slaven Belupo.

Goldson has been linked with a move to Rangers since the beginning of the transfer window and it's understood that a medical will take place in the coming days ahead of his switch from Brighton & Hove Albion.

Rangers' defence creaked continuously last term as Bruno Alves, Fabio Cardoso, Danny Wilson, David Bates, Ross McCrorie and Russell Martin all failed to provide an effective back line.

Katic is the fifth summer signing for Ibrox manager Steven Gerrard, following deals for Allan McGregor, Scott Arfield, Jamie Murphy and Ovie Ejaria.
