Kris Boyd Delivers An Absolutely Brutal Assessment of Nikola Katic’s Display at St Johnstone

Rangers legend Kris Boyd has delivered an utterly brutal assessment of defender Nikola Katic, following the Ibrox club’s underwhelming draw away to St Johnstone.

Goals from Florian Kamberi and Joe Aribo looked to have secured the three points for Steven Gerrard’s side but some lacklustre defending came back to haunt Rangers, with the game ending 2-2.

The Gers are now 12 points behind bitter rivals Celtic after their 3-1 win over Kilmarnock, and as we told you earlier, Gerrard was quick to criticise his players following the full-time whistle.

And now Boyd has given his own thoughts on Rangers’ defending, and even claimed Katic’s display was ‘the worst’ he’s ever seen from a players at the club.

Speaking on Sky Sports, via the Scotsman, Boyd said: “It was the worst 90 minutes I’ve seen from a Rangers centre-half. That I can remember anyway.

“The first three clips here [footage of Katic mistakes] are before the goal – the goal went in in the eighth minute.

“Steven Gerrard sent George Edmundson out to warm up after 10 minutes.

“For me, personally, I struggle to find a worse 90 minutes from a Rangers centre-half, I’m sorry.

“I just thought from start to finish, it wasn’t good enough.

“I’ve never seen it in Nikola Katic from the start,” he said. “I had a little period where I thought to myself ‘You’re doing the basics, as a defender, just clear your lines and you can be effective’.

“But today, not just today, since the break, to be honest, the bad habits have been creeping back into his game and that would be a worry that you have had criticism from the mistakes before and you’ve not learned from them and you continue to make them.”

What do you think of Boyd’s comments on Katic, and does the Croatian centre-back still have a long-term future at Rangers?
