The Croatian playmaker was named in the starting XI as the Scottish giants took on Linfield in a testimonial for Blues stalwart Jamie Mulgrew this afternoon.
He’s not had a consistent run of game since joining the Ibrox club, looking short on fitness, but never short on quality – and that was evidenced again in the first half of today’s game.
Beating his man 30 yards out, Kranjcar needed no invitation to shoot and unleashed a wonderful strike into the top corner.
Luckily, one Rangers fan was streaming the game on Periscope at the time and caught the goal in all its glory:

How Rangers would love Kranjcar to score them a goal like that against Celtic at Parkhead next week.
Warburton’s men ended up with a 5-0 lead at half-time, proving to have too much quality for the Northern Irish Premier League side.
Kenny Miller got a hat-trick, adding to the other goal from Rob Kiernan.
Rangers fans – would you start Kranjcar against Celtic?
