Rangers striker Antonio Colak has been named as the SPFL Premiership player of the month for September and October.

Colak, who joined the Ibrox side from PAOK in the summer, scored seven times in seven games to win the award.

The forward netted a double against Dundee United in September, then helped himself to doubles against Hearts and St Mirren.

He then scored the equaliser against Aberdeen last weekend before Rangers pushed on to win 4-1.

That brings the 29-year-old’s tally to 14 goals in 22 games this season.

Colak will now aim to continue his form in Rangers remaining games before the break and hope that he can secure a place in Croatia’s World Cup squad. he has already been named on the long list for the finals in Qatar.

There are eight forwards named in the 34-man provisional squad and manager Zlatko Dalic will cut that to 26 players in advance of the tournament.
