Rangers receive huge boost as 32-year-old returns to training - report

By Harvey Byrne

Rangers summer signing Niko Kranjcar has returned to training following a cruciate ligament injury, according to a report

The Daily Record have caught images of the 32-year-old back in training on Wednesday after he was expected to sit out for the rest of the season.

This will come as a huge boost to the Ibrox giants who are currently struggling in the Premiership and in the midfield department specifically.

The former Croatia international has been missing since a clash against Friday opponents Inverness in October as he left the field with the severe injury.

It is likely that he will still need some time before he reaches match fitness, but this is certainly some good news for fans in an otherwise dark period for the club.

Kranjcar needed some time to get going at Ibrox and supporters were growing disgruntled with the player.

However, with two assists in his four matches prior to his injury he was just starting to get going.

With history of playing starring roles for clubs such as Tottenham and Portsmouth in the English top flight supporters will now be excited to see what Kranjcar can bring to the table once more.
