A number of Rangers fans vented their displeasure at the performance of defender Nikola Katic as the Light Blues dropped more points in the Premiership title race this afternoon.
Steven Gerrard’s side were held to a 0-0 draw at home by Aberdeen, a result which leaves them four points off leaders Celtic. The outcome could have been even worse for the ‘Gers after a first half moment that their Croatian centre-back will surely want to forget.
Shortly before the interval, the 23-year-old was caught in possession by Sam Cosgrove on the halfway line and bore down on Rangers’ goal, only for a poor touch to enable Allan McGregor to claim the ball just as the ‘Dons man looked set to score. [via Sky Sports]
The Ibrox Noise player ratings after the match gave Katic a lowly five, saying that he “doesn’t look right” and bemoaning “another poor display”, adding: “Something’s gone wrong here, and the 23-year old is making more mistakes than normal”.
These Rangers fans on Twitter were critical of the defender’s sloppiness on a frustrating day for the Ibrox outfit, with one supporter accusing him of “having a howler“:

Katic been all over the place this half, the weakness of his game is when hes on the ball and he was lucky McGregor bailed him out.

Katic is a major bomb scare sometimes which is why Gerrard doesnt fully trust him.

Do you think Katic was one of Rangers’ poorer performers today? Was this his worst display of the season so far? Comment below with your views!
