Rangers midfielder Niko Kranjcar will “call it a day” at the end of the season and leave Rangers, according to a reliable broadcaster.

Bill Young of RockSport claimed on his personal Twitter account that the Croatian will be one of several players who will see their wage “recycled” in the summer when his contract comes to an end.

The veteran midfielder has struggled to make an impact at Ibrox since arriving from NASL side New York Cosmos in 2016 under Mark Warburton.

After suffering a serious knee injury last season, Kranjcar returned to the side at the start of the season but has had a number of niggly injuries disrupt his campaign and limit his appearances.

It is unclear if Kranjcar will retire from playing in the summer or continue his playing career elsewhere although after his recent injury problems it seems likely he will hang up his boots.

Kranjcar has made 26 appearances for the Gers, scoring three times and contributing six assists.

Football Insider verdict:

The signing of Kranjcar had the potential to work out well or go disastrously wrong for the Gers. Unfortunately it went disastrously wrong and Gers fans didn’t get to see the 81-times capped international at anywhere close to his best. Injuries have made things hard for the veteran although you can’t question his commitment after leaving his partner – and easier standard of football – to come to Scotland and have one last crack at playing at a high level. There were still brief flashes of the quality player who shone for Spurs and Portsmouth but it was few and far between.
