Niko Krancjar reveals he won’t play again for Rangers this season

As reported by The Daily Record, Rangers midfielder Niko Krancjar has revealed he won’t kick a ball for Rangers again this season with the cruciate ligament injury sustained in October confirmed to have ruled him out beyond May.

Krancjar was beginning to look like he could recapture the form that made him an English Premier League star prior to suffering the injury in training last Autumn.

Returning to light training last week, there had been some hope he may make more appearances before the end of the season, however he’s ruled himself out.

As quoted by The Daily Record, Krancjar said:

I was honoured to be given a chance to play for such a big club as Rangers. It took me a while to adjust, but I was very satisfied with my performances, especially just before I suffered my injury. My next goal is to get back to the level where I was before the injury. I am aware that it will be very difficult. It will mean a lot of sacrifice and a lot of work in the gym. I believe I will be ready for next season.

The Croatian international was one of the signings last summer that fans hoped may allow them to challenge Celtic for the Scottish Premiership title but they’ll now have to wait until the next campaign to find out whether or not the former Spurs man can produce his best stuff for the Light Blues.
