Niko Kranjcar - Tottenham Hotspur warms up

Former Tottenham Hotspur and Queens Park Rangers coach Joe Jordan has told The Scottish Sun that Niko Kranjcar would be a good signing for Rangers, but only if he is played regularly.

The former Tottenham attacking midfielder has been linked with a move to Scottish Premiership-bound Rangers in the summer transfer window.

According to the former Spurs star's lawyer, Emil Zgur, as quoted by BBC Sport, Kranjcar will arrive in Glasgow on Wednesday for a medical ahead of a move to Scottish Premiership-bound Rangers.

The Croatian attacking midfielder will sign a two-year contract with the Scottish giants, claims BBC Sport.

Kranjcar is a free agent at the moment following a spell at New York Cosmos, according to BBC Sport.

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 claimed that for Kranjcar to be a success at Ibrox, he must be played regularly.

“That is vital,” Jordan told The Scottish Sun. “Niko needs to be consistently playing because he’s one of those players whose fitness depends on being a first-team regular.

“We had a problem at QPR when he wasn’t playing regularly. It didn’t do him any favours, but when he was playing regularly, he was a real asset to the team."

“I understand why Rangers have gone for him,” added Jordan. “He has the experience and the ability, but the key thing will be that Mark sees enough of him to play him every week.”

Rangers won the Scottish Championship title with ease last season and will feature in the Scottish Premiership during the 2016-17 campaign.
