Rangers were made to work hard to keep their unbeaten run in the Scottish Premiership intact on Sunday afternoon as Steven Gerrard’s men left it late.
A Devante Cole goal in the 21st minute fired Motherwell in front and it stayed that way until the 72nd minute.
Substitute Cedric Itten came up trumps, nodding past Liam Kelly to earn the Gers an important point.
It was the performance of Croatian left-back Borna Barisic that caught the eye among supporters.
The Steven Gerrard favourite produced the pin-point cross for Itten to score Rangers’ equalising goal.
He was largely impressive throughout and supporters took to Twitter to rave about his display.
Barisic cost Rangers £2.2 million back in 2018 and he’s proved himself to be a shrewd piece of business.
The £15,000-a-week performer has played 94 games for the Gers, including 31 this term.
Gerrard clearly values his importance to the team and given his beauty of an assist at Fir Park it’s easy to see why.
Following a point apiece this afternoon we looked at what supporters were saying about the player with 15 Croatia caps.
What a ball Barisic and the big man scores again against Motherwell

About time, and no surprise the goal comes from a Barisic cross. https://t.co/cDTSdIKLtN

Rangers are level and it's very much deserved, Itten against Motherwell once again, Motherwell were getting deeper and deeper as Rangers were piling on the pressure. The cross from Borna Barisic was just magnificent, really good goal from the table toppers at Fir Park #MOTRAN
