NIKO KRANJCAR's father has revealed the midfielder is still in negotiations with Rangers over a move to Ibrox.

The former Spurs star held talks with boss Mark Warburton when he flew to the USA last month and is currently in Zagreb doing his coaching badges with the Croatian FA.

However, his father Zlatko, who managed Croatia. Montenegro, Dinamo Zagreb and a host of Middle East teams, reckons his son wants to come back and play in Europe.

He said: "Niko is doing his UEFA coaching badges, but his playing ambition is not dead, on the contrary actually.

"His contract with New York is about to run out and he's injured right now anyway. But he will be back and will play on.

"He could continue with Cosmos, who want to keep him or go to Rangers, who he is still talking to.

"He wants to return to Europe and I think that would be good for him because he can play at a top level for at least another two years."
