Report: Newcastle loanee Haris Vuckic nominated for Rangers' Player of the Year award

Despite playing just 16 games for Rangers, Newcastle loan star Vuckic has been shortlisted as Player of the Year.

As per the official Rangers website, Vuckic has been shortlisted as a potential winner of the Player of the Year award, despite only arriving at the club in January.

The 22-year-old midfielder has been in prolific form since he arrived at Ibrox in the January transfer window, netting nine goals and guaranteeing the club found their way back into play-off contention.

Despite his left-sided role, the Slovenian youngster - who has netted just one goal for Newcastle - is the biggest goal threat in the Light Blues ranks, and Stuart McCall has been getting the best out of him.

His impressive performances have seen him shortlisted for the Player of the Year award alongside Darren McGregor and Nicky Law, who have played a full season to Vuckic’s 19 games.

As well as his Player of the Year nomination, the 22-year-old has three of his nine goals nominated for Goal of the Season.

Vuckic’s impressive season with Rangers will continue through their play-off campaign, before he returns to St James’ Park in the summer. With one year left on his contract there is no knowing how his future will progress, but his performances with Rangers surely deserve a chance to impress for the Magpies next term.
