Steven Gerard certainly didn’t hide his affection for Croatian defender Nikola Katic during his post-match presser following their Europa League qualifiers yesterday night.
The hot prospect was brought in by the former England captain this summer almost as soon as he took over at the Ibrox club and hit the ground running against compatriots NK Osijek yesterday.
The 21-year-old sealed their progression into the group stages of the European competition with a towering header early into the second half and his performance has certainly left a good impression on his gaffer.
The young defender had already admitted his love for the Liverpool legend when he arrived in Scotland and now it seems the feeling is mutual between the pair after Gerrard told reporters “he’s mine” when asked about the hot prospect.
