Barry Ferguson has suggested in The Daily Record that Niko Kranjcar will prove to be a success for Rangers.

Former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Kranjcar joined Scottish Premiership-bound Rangers last month.

The Croatian attacking midfielder agreed a two-year contract with Rangers, as announced on the club’s official website.

The 31-year-old is a very good player and has experience of playing for some major clubs in England.

The former Dinamo Zagreb midfielder played for Tottenham in North London as well as for Portsmouth and Queens Park Rangers (on loan).

Former Rangers midfielder Ferguson has suggested that Kranjcar will prove to be a good signing for Mark Warburton’s side.

“Let’s not forget Niko Kranjcar who’s been convinced to move to Ibrox and he’s a terrific player,” Ferguson wrote in The Daily Record.

“His ability is about question and it’s about getting him fit. You only need to look at the clubs he’s played for to appreciate his pedigree.”

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

The Gers have been quite busy in the summer transfer window so far, signing former Newcastle United midfielder Joey Barton and ex-QPR defender Clint Hill among others.

The Glasgow giants will be aiming to compete with Old Firm rivals Celtic for the Scottish Premiership title next season.
