Former Tottenham Hotspur and Queens Park Rangers coach Joe Jordan has told The Daily Mail that Niko Kranjcar would be a good signing for Rangers.

According to a recent report in The Daily Record, Rangers are interested in signing Kranjcar in the summer transfer window when his current contract with New York Cosmos runs out.

Jordan worked with the attacking midfielder at Tottenham and QPR, and he believes that Croatian would be a good addition to the current Gers’ squad.

However, the former Leeds United and Manchester United forward has suggested that for Kranjcar to be a success at Ibrox, he has to be fit.

“I’ve worked with Niko for 10 years across three clubs and he is a very good player,” Jordan told The Daily Mail. “He is also a very good lad. The type that coaches love to work with.

“He’s got terrific qualities and at 31 he is still at a good age. If Niko is fit then he would definitely give Rangers quality. He was a captain from the age of 21 and he’s played in World Cups, cup finals.

“He’s a big game player who could handle life at Rangers no question. If Rangers get Niko in addition to Joey they will have made two very good signings.”

Kranjcar is a good player, and he would add experience and creativity to Rangers’ midfield.

The Croatian has proved himself in English football, and he would be a success in the Scottish Premiership as well.

Rangers won the Scottish Championship title with ease this past season, but they will find it tough in the Scottish Premiership during the 2016-17 campaign.

Many fans will expect the Gers to compete for the title with Old Firm rivals Celtic, but realistically they should aim for a top-three finish.
