Glasgow Rangers will return to Premiership action this weekend as they face Dundee United in the Scottish Premiership.
The Gers have had a fantastic start to the season, winning five and drawing one of their first six games without even conceding a goal. Not only that, the Ibrox outfit are also six points clear of their fierce rivals Celtic, although the Bhoys can level things up at the top if they win their two games in hand.
The 54-time Scottish champions will be hoping to continue their promising early-season form, but they have been hit by a blow during the international break. £3.6m-valued Borna Barisic (as per Transfermarkt), who represents Croatia, picked up a knock against Portugal and is now a doubt for the weekend. He has been in stunning form so far this campaign, with one goal and three assists in his first six league matches, and he would be a massive loss to Steven Gerrard if he were to be unavailable.
Is Barisic Rangers' best player?
The Gers fans have been reacting to the news, and it is fair to say they are not too happy. They have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts, and you can see some of the best comments from the social media platform below.

Will be a big miss but a chance for Bassey who looked comfortable there during preseason games when he was on

I hope he’s fit and available if not Bassey has got to come in and take his chance

Barisic struggling for Saturday, we really do get no luck at times with key players.
