Rangers ran out 3-0 winners against Hearts on Wednesday at Ibrox (BBC Sport).
Goals from Jermain Defoe, Connor Goldson and Scott Arfield ensured that the Light Blues bounced back from the disappointing defeat to Celtic last weekend.
It was a much better showing from Steven Gerrard’s side, who were clearly hurting from the result against the Hoops.
It was a first win in six games for Rangers, who moved eight points clear of Kilmarnock in third.
With the season drawing to a close, the time is now right for Gerrard to reintroduce Nikola Katic to the side in preparation for next season.
Given the fact that Joe Worrall is only on loan at the club from Nottingham Forest and could be returning to his parent club, it would make sense for Gerrard to start giving more games to the Croatian, who cost £2 million last summer from Slaven Belupo (The Scottish Sun).
He got 90 minutes against Kilmarnock before the internaitonal break, but Katic has since been an unused substitute against Celtic and Hearts.
With Rangers looking nailed on for second place in the table, Gerrard should think about working Katic back into his starting XI on a more regular basis.
He showed at the start of the season that he can be a great partner for Goldson but after a slight dip in form, Gerrard dropped him seemingly in order to protect him (The Daily Record).
Worrall has previously admitted that he’d be happy to return to Forest (The Scottish Sun) – now that the pressure is off, Katic should be brought back into the picture.
