Queens Park Rangers winger Matt Phillips has suggested to The Scottish Sun that Niko Kranjcar would be a good signing for Rangers.

According to The Scottish Sun, Kranjcar is on the verge of signing a two-year contract with Scottish Premiership-bound Rangers.

Scotland international winger Phillips played with the Croatian attacking midfielder at QPR, and he believes that the 31-year-old former Tottenham Hotspur star would be a success at Rangers.

“Niko will bring a touch of class and a certain amount of flair to Rangers,” Phillips told The Scottish Sun. “He is, without a doubt, one of the best midfielders I have played with.

“He is a magician with the ball. It doesn’t matter if it is on his right foot or left foot. He proved he was capable of doing big things in the Premier League with Portsmouth and Spurs so he will definitely be an asset to Rangers.”

Kranjcar would be a good signing for Rangers, who won the Scottish Championship title this past season and will feature in the Scottish Premiership campaign during the 2016-17 campaign.

The Gers have already signed former QPR and Newcastle United midfielder Joey Barton on a free in the summer transfer window.

A Barton-Kranjcar combination in the Rangers midfield next season would be hugely exciting for the fans.

Kranjcar is probably past his best, but he remains a good footballer whose creativity and vision would be an asset for the Gers.

Moreover, the Croatian would bring experience which would be valuable for Rangers in their quest to compete with Old Firm rivals Celtic for the Scottish Premiership title next season.
