As Rangers continue to post their ‘Goal of the Day’ videos on their official Twitter account, Saturday’s instalment had a number of fans reacting.
⚽️ GOAL OF THE DAY: Haris Vučkić v Cowdenbeath
— Rangers Football Club (@RangersFC) March 28, 2020
The footage showed Haris Vučkić scoring a goal against Cowdenbeath in 2015 as the Light Blues continued to work their way back up the Scottish football pyramid following their demotion to the bottom tier back in 2012 (ITV).
Indeed, the Slovenian looked to try and help the Gers continue their ascent up the league ladder when he arrived at Ibrox on a short-term loan deal from Newcastle United on Deadline Day, along with four other Toon Army men (per BBC).
The attacking midfielder certainly played his role during his spell in Glasgow, bagging nine goals and four assists in his 22 appearances across all competitions (per TransferMarkt), although he was unable to get Rangers back into the Premiership as they lost to Motherwell in the play-off.
After witnessing the footage of Vučkić scoring against Cowdenbeath, many of the Rangers faithful took to Twitter to share their opinions, with a general consensus that the club should have looked to sign him permanently.
One fan even suggested that he was the type of player Mark Warburton needed and would have made that side better. However, one even admitted he did not remember him playing for them.
Here are just some of their reactions to the club post…
Vuckic would have made us better under Warburton. Was the type of player we needed under Warbs but never signed.
Not that he was amazing but certainly wouldn’t have hindered us in any way

Not too many positives at that whole time but Vuckic was one of the very few bright sparks.

Still disappointing that we never signed him permanently

he was someone that should’ve stayed. Showed potential and dropped off the face of the earth after leaving us
