A number of Rangers fans have taken to Twitter to comment on Borna Barisic’s display as the Gers produced a stunning performance to win 5-0 at Ibrox on Saturday.
Steven Gerrard’s side have taken another step towards winning the Scottish Premiership. They thrashed Ross County, with five different players getting on the scoresheet.
Two of the assists came from Barisic, who now has 13 in all competitions. Both of his delicious crosses were converted by centre-backs, with both Filip Helander and Connor Goldson finding the back of the net.
Remarkably, he made seven key passes during the game. According to Whoscored, that is two more than the opposition managed between them in the contest.
He completed 32 accurate passes during the game. That means – incredibly – that he averaged better than one key pass in every five passes he made successfully.
Three of Barisic’s three league assists have come in the Gers’ last two games. They have provided a reminder of how influential he can be, particularly from set-piece situations.
And his performance prompted many Rangers fans to laud the 28-year-old on social media. Several felt that he was the man of the match in the victory.
But when even others got the nod ahead of him, Barisic’s display was still recognised by many for being particularly impressive.
With that in mind, here is how some of the Rangers fans reacted to Barisic’s performance…
Nice to see Borna Barisic quietly going about his business with a MOTM performance.

Great result today another step closer to 55 . MOTM Hagi for me . Kent started off well today but fell away second half was only involved a couple of times of note. Thought Barisic was excellent too. Good to see Jack back and get his goal .

Fantastic performance. Barisic was MOTM for me. Hagi endeavour was good but tbh he was abysmal today as always.

What a win at Ibrox! Kent, Aribo, Hagi, Morelos, Barisic, and Jack, among others, were all excellent today. #RangersFC‘s magic number drops to 26, and another great game awaits on Wednesday night in Edinburgh. #RFC #WATP #SPFL
