Rangers have confirmed the departure of Antonio Colak to Parma for an undisclosed fee, subject to international clearance.

The Croatian international striker, 29, hit 18 goals in 39 appearances for the Light Blues in his one season at the club having joined from PAOK last summer.

His strikes included three in UEFA Champions League qualifying, with one of those being the crucial winner away in Eindhoven to send Gers to the group stages for the first time in 12 years.

He tied with skipper James Tavernier for the club’s top goalscorer last season after netting in what was his final appearance for the club against St Mirren in May.

A club statement added: "He departs Ibrox with the thanks of everyone at the Ibrox for his contribution, and also best wishes for the future."

Manager, Michael Beale, commented: “Antonio can be really proud of his time here at Rangers.

"He scored goals and made a good contribution on the pitch but also as a man and professional, he was someone that I enjoyed working with and who built strong relationships with his team mates and staff off the pitch.

“We initially had a conversation at the end of last season, where we discussed football, his family and also what the future would look like in terms of the team.

"Antonio was very honest on his side and we have been working with him and his agent in the following weeks to find a solution that suits all parties. I am pleased for him to have this excellent opportunity in Italy.

“He took the time to speak to all the staff and squad in Germany to say goodbye and thank you. This moment typified Antonio’s class as a man.

"Everyone at Rangers would like to wish him and his family huge success moving forwards and he will always have a warm welcome at Ibrox.”
