Borna Barisic has been pictured in training ahead of Glasgow Rangers’ Europa League clash against Lech Poznan tonight.
However, Barisic has been pictured in training with the Ibrox outfit and should therefore be in contention to feature in Europe this week.
Gerrard should be wary
Of course, it is good news for Gerrard that Barisic is now available – it at least gives him another option when selecting his starting XI. However, he must be wary not to throw him straight into the starting line-up against the Polish outfit.
The last thing Gerrard wants is to see the Croatia international picking up an injury. The 27-year-old has encountered a number of problems over the past few weeks – he had an issue against Ross County, whilst he also missed two matches for his country during the international break.
Will Rangers beat Lech Poznan in the Europa League?
In Bassey, the ‘Gers have a reliable replacement. He is more than capable of holding down the fort in Barisic’s absence, and also deserves the backing of his manager. As such, Gerrard must make sure the £3.6m-valued former NK Osijek man is fully fit if he selects him.
