Rangers fans are begging for the club to sign NK Osijek captain Borna Barisic following an impressive display in the Europa League qualifying tie.
Rangers progressed to the next round thanks to a 2-1 aggregate win, but things got nervy last night following a late equaliser courtesy of Barisic via a deflection from Connor Goldson.
The versatile player is comfortable playing at left-back and left-midfield and was a constant menace down the Rangers’ right flank throughout the game.
The Croatian international, who is valued at £1.8million on Transfermarkt, would certainly provide competition for places at left-back and could form a strong partnership alongside compatriot Nikola Katic.
Gerrard has made a raft of signings this summer and it appears the one position he is still looking to fill is a left-sided centre-back so Barisic is unlikely to be on his radar at the moment.
However, that didn’t stop fans calling out for their new manager to sign him up on social media.
Said last week we should look at signing Barisic. Still think so after tonight. Easily their best player. https://t.co/vJY6S3B2kT

I thought the big left back that scored was their biggest threat over the two legs… Barisic??? Would be a good exchange for Hodson Lolol
