Steven Gerrard Reckons Nikola Katic Will Soon Be Called-up to the Croatia Senior Squad

Rangers boss Steven Gerrard reckons new signing Nikola Katic will soon win a call-up to the senior Croatia squad, less than two weeks after Luka Modric and co reached the World Cup Final.

Katic was signed from Slaven Belupo earlier this summer on a four-year deal, with Gerrard sanctioning the £2 million transfer as he attempts to overhaul the club’s defensive options.

The 21-year-old has been capped twice by the Croatian Under-21s, and even has one senior cap to his name, but after working with the centre-back for six weeks or so, Gerrard seems pretty convinced it’s only a matter of time before he adds to that total:

Katic looks set to start tomorrow night’s Europa League qualifier away to Croatian side Osijek, with a decent run in European competition likely to improve the club’s finances.

But do you think Katic has what it takes to make it in the Croatia team? Is he an international star in the making?
