112 touches, 2 key passes; £2.2m Rangers player is coming in leaps and bounds under GVB

Glasgow Rangers are in amazing form right now, new Gers manager Giovanni van Bronckhorst enjoying a superb start to his Ibrox tenure.

On Saturday, Rangers went seven points clear at the top of the Scottish Premiership table with Van Bronckhorst’s fourth consecutive win as Ibrox boss.

The Light Blues ran out 3-0 winners over Dundee, thanks to goals from Joe Aribo and Alfredo Morelos, plus a Ryan Sweeney own goal.

Aribo opened the scoring for Rangers at Ibrox with a 36th-minute effort from the edge of the box via a slight Liam Fontaine deflection.

In the 55th minute, the 25-year-old then delivered a cross which Sweeney tried to cut out, but diverted into his own net.

And midway through the second half, Morelos surged through the Dundee defence before finding the back of the net with a well-struck effort.

One player who may not have grabbed the headlines but gave a great account of himself is Borna Barisic.

Admittedly the £2.2million man may have not had the hardest of afternoons, but he’s certainly looking back to his best.

Barisic looks revitalised and hungrier than ever under the new coaches, and his stats from the game are impressive.

The Croatian took 112 touches of the ball, made two key passes, won five aerials and had one effort on target.

Barisic also chipped in with six crosses and six long balls, along with 85 passes at 90.6 percent accuracy.

And defensively, he weighed in with five clearances, one tackle and one interception (Whoscored).

Rangers look invigorated under Van Bronckhorst and Barisic is certainly benefiting from the change in management.
