Rangers supporters loved the performance of defender Nikola Katic on Sunday, after he helped his side to a 2-0 Scottish Premiership victory over Aberdeen at Ibrox.
Steven Gerrard’s team have now won four consecutive matches since losing to Celtic at the end of last month and are now carrying serious momentum into the summer, with a number of players looking full of confidence.
One of those is undoubtedly Katic, who has been reintroduced into the first-team in recent weeks and looked very comfortable alongside Connor Goldson.
With Joe Worrall heading back to Nottingham Forest at the end of the season, it’s important that Katic rebuilds his defensive partnership with the former Brighton man ahead of this summer’s European qualifiers.
He was excellent against Aberdeen – carrying the ball out of defence, not giving the Dons attackers a sniff and also winning the two penalties that provided the three points.
These fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts on his Sunday display…
Brilliant result and yet another good performance from Katic, definite starter for next season.

Delighted with another win but sloppier, hesitant at times. Improved after slow start tho. Kent had one of his poorer games. Katic MOTM. Another dominant display.

Dominated the game, felt like it was similar level of performance to our Hampden defeat and Ibrox league defeat to them except we managed to score and they didn’t bundle 1 in from a set piece. Katic my MOTM, making a mockery of being left out for so long

Thought big Katic was outstanding, MOTM for me. Davis different class aswell now that he’s fit

When the announcer said Goldson was MOTM I had to laugh, he was alright but big Katic strolled that game and was class. He was my MOTM today followed by Davis
