'Needs to go', 'Worse than useless' - Rangers fans annihilate senior player for display v Corinthians
Rangers fans have taken to Twitter to annihilate Niko Kranjcar for his performance in the Florida Cup clash against Brazilian side Corinthians on Saturday.
Kranjcar, 33, started for the Light Blues in their 4-2 friendly win over Corinthians but was one of many players to have been taken off by Graeme Murty at half-time as he looked to give the entirety of his squad some game-time.
The former Tottenham and Portsmouth midfielder did little to impress Rangers fans with his outing though, with many urging the Glasgow club to get rid of the senior player during the January transfer window.
One unhappy supporter said that the Croatian “needs to go”.
Here is a selection of their tweets:
Niko Kranjcar is so by, needs to go!

I dont want to see Niko Kranjcar play for Rangers again

Herrera, kranjcar and gomes are worse than useless
— peter downie (@peterdownie1988) January 13, 2018
Hope Kranjcar never plays for us again

Can’t believe I’m going to say this but Dalcio hasn’t been that bad. Kranjcar and Herrera are shocking. No movement from Herrera and Kranjcar thinks he plays on a roundabout, finds it impossible to play a first time pass and needs to try 3 pirouettes before seeing a pass.

Kranjcar – started well from deep for first 20 mins then has turned off, shocking last 25
Holt – struggling with strength of other midfielders
O’halloran – absolutely awful
Windass – only real threat
Dalcio – surprisingly has been our best player
Herrera – anonymous

Send Dalcio back and release Kranjcar

Kranjcar’s time at Ibrox has been plagued by injuries ever since he was signed up by Mark Warburton in the summer of 2016.
He has only made 10 competitive appearances for the Glasgow side this season, supplying two assists in the process.
The ex-Spurs playmaker started the last two Premiership games of 2017 ahead of the winter break, largely down to the injuries that have been suffered by Graham Dorrans and Ryan Jack.
Rangers may still have to find more recruits to add to the midfield before they return to domestic action later this month in the Scottish Cup clash against Fraserburg.
In other Rangers news, the Light Blues are on the verge of an agreement so snap up this explosive forward from the Premier League.
