The Croatian hasn’t played for Rangers since March 2020. He missed the entire 2020/21 campaign with a cruciate ligament rupture then spent last season with Hajduk Split in his homeland.

Maccabi would be an attractive prospect for Katic with the club in the Champions League where they will face Paris Saint-Germain, Juventus and Benfica.
