Rangers in advanced talks to make sixth summer signing after contract offer - reports
By Alex Taylor
Rangers are set to announce the signing of Croatian midfielder Niko Kranjcar after he arrived in Glasgow to undergo a medical, according to reports.
Stv News claim the move looks set to go through as Rangers aim to bolster their squad ahead of their first return to the Scottish Premier League since their 2012 relegation to the third tier of Scottish football.
The Daily Mail claim Kranjcar will sign a two-year deal at Ibrox in a move that could be wrapped up within the next 24 hours.
Manager Mark Warburton has already completed a number of signings this summer including Jordan Rossiter, Clint Hill and Joey Barton.
Kranjcar has played 81 times for his country, famously scoring the goal against England that prevented them from qualifying for Euro 2008.

The 6ft 1in star has scored 73 goals in 429 games in a career that began 16 years ago with Dinamo Zagreb. Since then Kranjcar has played for Tottenham, Portsmouth and Queens Park Rangers before his move north of the border.
