22 year-old Newcastle forward Haris Vuckic has done very well in Scotland this year, but we have to remember it’s the second level of Scottish football and nowhere near the class of the England Premier League – but nevertheless the Slovenian International has looked good, and has 9 goals in just 13 appearances for Rangers.
Haris Vuckic in action for Rangers
It’s a good question as to what Newcastle will do with the 22 year-old this summer, but at the very least he should be given a chance at Newcastle in pre-season.
His situation is similar to that of Mehdi Abeid last summer, and the French Algerian was given his chance after playing a full season out on loan in Greece with Panathinaikos, when he scored 10 goals in 38 appearances for them.
This is what Haris has said in the Mail:
“My future will depend on what Newcastle have to say. We’ll see in the summer,” “Newcastle are the ones to decide – I still have to respect them because I have a year left on my contract there.”
“In the summer, I will have options and pick the best one for me.” “If that is Rangers – I have been enjoying it here, the fans like me and I like it here so that will be a good option.”
“I don’t know if there would be a fee involved – I will know more in the summer.”
He is a popular lad in Scotland, and the Rangers fans would be very happy if he signed for them permanently in the summer, and after all the 22 year-old has loads of class.
Vuckic joined Newcastle back in January of 2009 as a 16 year-old, and has never really fulfilled his enormous promise as a young player, mainly due to a succession of injuries he’s sustained.
But his time at Rangers will have given him some confidence which is important, and Newcastle will likely take a close look at him in pre-season before deciding on his future.
