Rangers have signed Croatian defender Nikola Katic from Slaven Belupo on a four-year deal for an undisclosed fee.

He joined Slaven Belupo in January 2016 and made 34 appearances last season as the club from Koprivnica finished sixth in the Croatian top flight.

Katic told Rangers TV: “When they told me Steven Gerrard wanted to take me, I told my agent I just need to take my shoes and run to Scotland.”

The defender added: “He is a legend of world football and I’m glad to be here with him.”

Katic is the fifth summer signing for Ibrox manager Steven Gerrard, following deals for Allan McGregor,Scott Arfield,Jamie Murphy and Ovie Ejaria.
