After the 4-1 win away at Easter Road fans didn’t think this would even be a question as Antonio Colak was superb that night. Unfortunately, in the next SPFL game away at Fir Park he turned in a performance even Egil Ostenstad would be ashamed of.
He’s also failed to show up in any of the Old Firm games this season and fans are now questioning whether he should have a future at the club at all never mind if he should be first choice or not.
A lot of this comes from the fact that he is a sellable asset, he’s had a pretty decent first season in Scottish football actually, his SPFL numbers are;
- 24 Appearances (18 Starts)
- 108mins Per Goal
- 17% Shot Conversion
- 10 Big Chances Missed
Those are good numbers and he’s probably the best finisher at the club, just ahead of Roofe. The thing with him has always been, what does he offer outside of that? His build play looked much improved at Easter Road but then at Fir Park he was making poor decisions and his finishing was awful.
This showed that if he’s having an off day with his finishing he really doesn’t offer much else to the team. Every club needs goal-scorers though and he could be an excellent second or third choice striker should the club decide to keep him.
There now seems to be a feeling from the majority of the support that they wouldn’t be overly upset to see him leave. If Rangers could recoup a couple of million for the Croatian striker, would you take it?
At times this season the fans have been clamouring for him to be first choice when Morelos was off of his game but some recent performances have put that thought to bed. Antonio Colak is a good finisher and will get goals wherever he goals but he’s definitely not what Rangers need in a first choice striker and he may not be happy playing second fiddle.
What are your thoughts on Antonio Colak now? Should the club look to sell and invest the money elsewhere or does he deserve to stay and prove his worth?
