Niko Krancjar has had his Rangers contract terminated by mutual consent – and fans have delivered mixed verdicts on Twitter.

The Glasgow giants revealed on their official website and Twitter account that the 33-year-old attacking midfielder has quit with two months of the season remaining.

The former Croatia international was signed by former Light Blues Mark Warburton from New York Cosmos in the summer of 2016 but endured an injury-hit spell at the club wracked by knee problems.

He made 26 appearances in two seasons – just 11 in the current campaign – and scored only three goals.

Kranjcar last played for Rangers in their Scottish Cup win over Fraserburgh on 31 January and he has not played in the Scottish Premiership since the turn of the year.

He has slipped down the pecking order following a number of new January signings, including left winger Jamie Murphy on loan from Brighton.

Rangers supporters are split between wishing Kranjcar well and expressing their delight that he will no longer be draining the club’s wage bill.

Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:
