Haris Vuckic explains why it's 'really good' working under McCall at Rangers

Haris Vuckic has heaped praise on Rangers manager Stuart McCall.

Rangers playmaker Haris Vuckic has admitted to the club's official website that it's been 'really good' working under Stuart McCall since his appointment earlier this month.

Vuckic, 22, joined Rangers on deadline day in February having failed to break into the Newcastle United first-team, penning a loan deal until the end of the season.

So far, Vuckic has been a roaring success at Ibrox. The Slovenian bagged twice against Cowdenbeath on Saturday, taking his tally to five goals in just nine appearances for Rangers.

Despite his impressive record, Vuckic has been left on the bench by new manager McCall recently, with Dean Shiels preferred in the starting line-up.

Yet after his two goals on Saturday, McCall lauded Vuckic as being similar to former Rangers star Alexei Mikhailichenko, suggesting that Vuckic could well play a bigger role in the coming weeks.

McCall has made a bright start to life as Rangers managed having been appointed earlier in March, and Vuckic told the Rangers official website that he's enjoying life under the former Motherwell boss. 

"It has been really good working with the new management team," said Vuckic. "When I joined a few months ago the changing room was a little bit down because of the whole situation that is now behind us.

“The new management have come in with a new enthusiasm and everyone is on the training ground wanting to prove themselves to him."

"The manager knows what he is talking about and we are following his game plans and are winning games which is the most important thing," he added.

Rangers face Scottish Championship winners Hearts on Sunday, and will be looking to push ahead of Hibs this weekend, with the two teams currently locked in second place - a vital spot in the play-off landscape.
