‘Yessssssss’, ‘dub’: Some Rangers fans erupt over update from Steven Gerrard

A number of Glasgow Rangers fans have taken to Twitter to comment on Steven Gerrard’s update about Ibrox defender Borna Barisic.

The 27-year-old has missed the last two Rangers games – the win over Livingston and the defeat to Kilmarnock – after sustaining a hip injury in the Scottish Cup win over Hamilton Academical.

Previous reports in the likes of the Scottish Sun claimed that Barisic faced a last-gasp fitness sweat ahead of Rangers’ Europa League last-32 first-leg meeting against Braga at Ibrox.

However, Gerrard confirmed on Wednesday that the Croatian left-back played the majority of the training session the previous day and, crucially, is available for selection in the big game.

Needless to say there were quite a few happy Bears, who took to social media to give their thoughts:

 

Barisic, a £2.2million signing from Croatian club NK Osijek in the summer of 2018 (Transfermarkt), has registered a superb 14 assists, plus two goals, in 33 Rangers appearances in all competitions this term.

Rangers will be hoping he’s firing on all cylinders, as is the rest of the team, against a side that has not lost for 10 matches in all competitions and has beaten Primeira Liga giants Benfica, Porto and Sporting Lisbon this season.
