Rangers fans praise ‘superb’ Borna Barisic after Rapid Vienna loss

Borna Barisic completed 90 minutes in the narrow 1-0 defeat to Rapid Vienna on Thursday – and some of the Rangers fans on Twitter hailed him for the quality of his performance.

Steven Gerrard’s side ended up exiting the Europa League at the group stages, as they were unable to get the three points that would have seen them qualify for the knockout rounds.

The Light Blues fell short in front of goal against Austrian outfit Rapid Vienna, who netted a winner through Dejan Ljubicic in the 84th minute to break Gers hearts.
