Rangers: Borna Barisic shone in Dundee FC victory

Rangers had no issue getting past their opposition in their latest SPFL match on Saturday with a 3-0 win thanks to goals from Alfredo Morelos, Joe Aribo and an own goal from Ryan Sweeney.

Other than Morelos and Aribo, one Rangers player that featured in the win over Dundee at Ibrox that deserves a lot of credit for his performance today was left-back Borna Barisic.

With 90 minutes under his belt on this occasion, Barisic showed Rangers manager Giovanni van Bronckhorst just what a crucial figure he can be for the team in a defensive and attacking regard.

How well do you know Morelos? First... who did he score his 100th goal against?

From a defensive point of view, Barisic managed to make one tackle, one interception and five tackles as well as winning all six of the duels he was involved in, showing just how vital he was in Rangers keeping a clean sheet on this occasion.

In an attacking sense, Barisic also managed to show off his talents by making two key passes, two accurate crosses and having one shot on target, showing how he ran the show for Rangers up and down the pitch today.

This overall display earned the defender an impressive overall match rating of 8.1/10, making him the joint-second highest rated Rangers player on the day according to SofaScore.

FootballScotland also picked up on the full-back’s solid display by saying that he “provided a good outlet on the left-flank and supported [Fashion] Sakala well.”

With Barisic being praised in the past by former Rangers midfielder Alex Rae for having “terrific quality,” the defender certainly had that quality on display this afternoon for everyone to see.

Looking at the season so far as a whole, with 18 appearances and two assists under his belt across all competitions, this shows just how important he is for Rangers and how significant he can be under van Bronckhorst going forward.

Additionally, with his performances in the nine league appearances he’s made this season earning Barisic an overall rating of 7.27/10, making him Rangers’ third-highest rated player according to WhoScored, this shows just how impressive he has been for them.

Moving forward, if Barisic can continue delivering performances like the one he produced this weekend, he could give Rangers a great chance of securing the league title once again by keeping the team sturdy at the back but dangerous going forward as well.
