Former Celtic striker Chris Sutton has praised Rangers summer signing Niko Kranjcar in The Daily Record.

Scottish Premiership outfit Rangers signed Kranjcar in the summer transfer window.

The 31-year-old attacking midfielder has arrived at Ibrox with a strong reputation, having featured for the likes of Tottenham Hotspur and Queens Park Rangers in his career.

Former Celtic striker Sutton rates Kranjcar highly and has included him in his Old Firm XI for The Daily Record.

“Niko Kranjcar also has to feature although I really like Kris Commons and it would be a tight one if he was fit,” Sutton wrote in The Daily Record.

“Depending on what shape shape and physical condition Kranjcar can get himself in then nobody can argue with his awareness on the pitch.

“If Rangers can get the Croatian anywhere near fit then they will have a wonderful footballer on their books.

“Kranjcar sees the game in pictures and is a real creative type. He is a game changer who can produce something out of the ordinary or something special when required.”

Kranjcar is a very talented footballer, and he will enhance the quality of the current Rangers squad.

The Gers will feature in the Scottish Premiership this season after winning the Scottish Championship title with ease during the 2015-16 campaign.

Mark Warburton’s side will be expected by many to compete with Old Firm rivals Celtic for the Scottish Premiership title.

Rangers will kick off their 2016-17 Scottish Premiership campaign with a home game against Hamilton Academical on Saturday afternoon.

The Gers will head into the game at the Ibrox Stadium in Glasgow as favourites and should be able to register a comfortable win.
