Some Rangers fans impressed with improved Borna Barisic display
Rangers played out a 0-0 draw with Hibernian in the Scottish Premiership last night. It meant Celtic leapfrogged them into the top spot as they defeated Motherwell 3-0.
It was a tough game for Rangers who, despite taking many benefits from the performance, will be disappointed to miss out on three points.
However, there were positives, including the performance of Croatian defender Borna Barisic.
The left-back put in a solid and impressive display, developing a burgeoning relationship with Eros Grezda down that flank.
Rangers signed Barisic for £2.2 million in the summer. It came after he had impressed for Osijek in a Europa League tie against the Glasgow side.
Steven Gerrard was clearly impressed and brought him to Ibrox.
His start to life at Rangers has been mixed. A calf problem saw him miss two months of action and the Ibrox faithful were not yet convinced.
However, he clearly has the ability to be a star left-back for Rangers and last night he put in one of his best performances yet since heading to Glasgow.
Here is some of the best reaction from Rangers fans on twitter…

We are only 2 to 3 players away imo.
Barisic really starting to show his quality…Grezda still finding his way.
Jack was superb as well.
Morelos was outstanding…

Still a bit annoyed from last night but too many positives to be downhearted. Defence (largely) solid. Midfield excellent. Coulibaly found some form. Barisic a real find. Morelos unplayable. Dominated game for 70mins. Now we must carry this form into our last three games.

I do like Barisic and think he’ll do well for @RangersFC long term. Let’s give him free kick duty please Tavs.

@RangersFC Best performance from the team this season. Barisic looks a player, Morelos and Jack superb. As close to our strongest team in my opinion. Gutted we didn’t get 3 points but pleased with the effort and discipline tonight ????⚪️???

Morelos had Ambrose in his back pocket , Jack was the calmest man in Scotland with that tackle in the box second half , we play better when Arfields in team , Barisic is such a good LB

If Barisic isn’t your favourite player by the end of the season your supporting the wrong club

Glad Barisic is back hopefully stays injury free and becomes our regular left back. Hopefully Kent makes a good recovery after winter break and with a few January signings we will be looking good imo.

Barisic is sound at the back btw
