Ranko Stojić (Serbian Cyrillic: Paнкo Cтojић; born January 18, 1959 in Bugojno, SFR Yugoslavia) is a Bosnian Serb former football goalkeeper and current player agent. He capped 14 times for Yugoslav national team.

Since retiring as a player, Stojić became an influential player agent in Serbia. He's also the main financial backer of FK Rad.

Throughout 2008, Stojić's name has often been mentioned in connection to corruption and player transfer fee skimming in Serbian football. On December 10, 2008 Serbian police pressed charges against Stojić and former Red Star Belgrade president Dragan Džajić for skimming the transfer fee of Ivan Dudić when he transferred from Red Star to S.L. Benfica during summer 2000 transfer window. According to Serbian police charges, of the DM7 million transfer fee, Džajić and Stojić only submitted 2 million into the club's register while splitting the remaining 5 million between themselves.[1]

International[edit]

Stojić made his national team debut on 12 September 1984 as a sub in a friendly away at Scotland. The team was still reeling from the disastrous showing at Euro 1984 earlier that summer, which cost head coach Toza Veselinović his job. In addition to Stojić, six more players got their debuts that day in Glasgow — starters Edin Bahtić, Fadil Vokrri, Petar Georgijevski, and Zoran Batrović as well as subs Davor Jozić and Darko Pančev — as the new head coach Miloš Milutinović, also in his debut match behind Yugoslav bench, looked to experiment and test out some new players. He brought the 25-year-old Stojić on for Dragan Pantelić with Yugoslavia losing 3-0. Stojić conceded three more goals as the match ended in an embarrassing 6-1 loss for Yugoslavia.

1986 World Cup qualifying[edit]

Still, Stojić made a good enough impression in Scotland to get a start two weeks later for the opening match of 1986 World Cup qualifying at home versus Bulgaria. He didn't concede as the match ended 0-0.
