Haris Vuckic: This is why joining Rangers on loan from Newcastle was 'perfect' move

Haris Vuckic says joining Rangers was the 'perfect' move for him.

Rangers forward Haris Vuckic has told the club's official YouTube channel that leaving Newcastle for a loan spell at Ibrox was 'perfect'.

Vuckic, 22, joined Newcastle from Domzale in his native Slovenia back in 2009, but has played only 19 times for the club, having been loaned out to Cardiff City, Rotherham United and now Rangers.

Whilst his other loan moves didn't reap much reward, his time at Rangers has been nothing short of sensational, scoring nine goals in just 14 appearances as he has become the driving force in Rangers' bid for promotion back to the Scottish Premiership.

After impressing so much under manager Stuart McCall, Rangers fans would no doubt want Vuckic to stay long-term - but he is of course still owned by Newcastle.

The Magpies are fighting relegation in the Premier League, and have recently suffered a lack of goals; somewhat ironic considering how Vuckic can't stop scoring for Rangers.

It remains to be seen what Newcastle choose to do with Vuckic this summer, but the impressive forward has told the Rangers YouTube channel that the move to Ibrox was 'perfect' - because it gave him a chance to shine which he hadn't been given at St. James' Park.

"I came here to get my chance, to get that experience and get my confidence back," said Vuckic. "I didn't get that chance so much at Newcastle, and that was the perfect move for me, to Rangers - to play every week and do well for the team," he added.

With Rangers leading 2-1 against Queen of the South from the first leg of their play-off clash, McCall's men will look to finish the job at Ibrox on Sunday - and Vuckic is likely to be integral to their hopes of winning the game.
