Glasgow Rangers were delighted with comments from left-back Borna Barisic ahead of the Scottish Cup fourth round on Sunday.
The Gers will face Celtic in an Old Firm derby this weekend in the Cup as they look to make it through to the quarter-finals. With the Premiership title already having been sewn up, the Ibrox outfit are in with a chance of a domestic double.
Ahead of the clash, Celtic manager John Kennedy said the Bhoys are the best team in the country on their day (The Scottish Sun), even though they currently trail the Gers by 20 points in the league table (BBC). During the Gers’ pre-match press confidence, Barisic said it is the biggest joke he has heard – he was clearly not impressed with what Kennedy had to say.
Will Rangers get past Celtic?
The comments were shared on the Gers’ official Twitter page, and they attracted plenty attention from the club’s supporters. They took to the social media platform to share their thoughts.
Let’s see what the fans had to say about the comments from Barisic below
“Go out & rub it right into them Rub it right into them”
“Brilliant big man. Simply The Best”
“You tell them Borna”
“Well said Gerrard must be dishing out media handling lessons”
“Get in there Borna”
