Rangers midfielder delivers verdict on Kranjcar impact
By Dominic Toner
Jason Holt believes that Niko Kranjcar has had a positive impact since he arrived at Rangers in the summer.
Kranjcar, 32, was one of several new recruits made by Mark Warburton and he has been a regular starter at the beginning of the season.
The central midfielder has made 14 appearances already for the Scottish giants, scoring three goals and supplying three assists.
Holt, 23, has recently found himself in the starting team alongside Kranjcar in the midfield and believes he has learnt a lot already from the former Tottenham ace.
“Niko has been great since he came in and I’m constantly learning from him in training and games,” he said, as quoted by the Rangers Twitter account.

Kranjcar has previously played at English duo Spurs and Portsmouth in the Premier League, as well Dinamo Zagreb, Hajduk Split, Rapid Vienna, Dynamo Kiev and most recently American side New York Cosmos.
The Croatian midfielder moved to the Scottish giants this summer and joins with vast top-level experience after 15 years at the top for club and country.
Manager Warburton will be hoping that Kranjcar can help youngster such as Holt develop into top players.
