Club careerEdit

In June 2003, Rnić signed his first professional contract with Partizan on a five-year deal.[1] He won two national championship titles and one national cup, before moving abroad to Belgian club Anderlecht on a free transfer in June 2008. Over the following three seasons, Rnić made less than 30 competitive appearances for the Brussels-based club, before being loaned to fellow Pro League side Germinal Beerschot in January 2011.

In July 2011, Rnić returned to Partizan and signed a one-year contract.[2] He made 25 league appearances in the 2011–12 season, helping the club win its fifth consecutive title. After more than six months without a club, Rnić signed a contract with Ukrainian side Hoverla Uzhhorod in March 2013. He subsequently moved to Austria and joined Wolfsberger AC in August 2013. Over the next six years, Rnić made over 150 league appearances and scored three goals.

International careerEdit

Rnić represented Serbia and Montenegro at the 2006 UEFA Under-21 Championship in Portugal. He also represented Serbia at the 2007 UEFA Under-21 Championship in the Netherlands, as the team finished as runners-up.[3]

On 8 June 2005, Rnić made his senior debut for Serbia and Montenegro in a friendly against Italy at the Rogers Centre in Toronto, as the game ended 1–1. He also made two appearances for Serbia in 2008, both under the managerial reign of Miroslav Đukić.
