Nikola Katic Reveals How Special Winning Goal v Celtic is to Him

Nikola Katic has revealed how special the winning goal against Celtic is to him.

The Croatian defender was the hero last month when he headed home Rangers’ winner at Celtic Park.

The score was level at 1-1 when Katic popped up, the hosts cancelling out Ryan Kent’s opener with a goal from Odsonne Edouard.

He climbed highest to bullet a header beyond Fraser Forster in the Celtic goal – and that sparked wild celebrations among the Rangers players and fans.

Rangers went on to win 2-1 and close the gap to Celtic at the top of the Ladbrokes Premiership to one point with a game in hand.

As Rangers return to league duty for the first time since that game when they play St Mirren tomorrow night, Katic was happy to reminisce on the biggest goal of his career while speaking to the media this afternoon:

Katic has taken full advantage of the injury Filip Helander picked up at the start of December, turning in several top performances before popping up with that winning goal against Celtic.

Rangers take on St Mirren at Ibrox on Wednesday night hoping to keep the pressure on Celtic at the top of the table.
