Video: Niko Kranjcar Scores 30-Yard Beauty Against Linfield

Niko Kranjcar appears to be hitting his stride in perfect time for Rangers against Celtic next weekend.

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.

Periscope goal

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?
