A family member of Borna Barisic has revealed he will not be leaving Glasgow Rangers this summer despite links to AS Roma.
The Lowdown: Barisic linked with AS Roma
The Croatia international had been heavily linked with a move to Serie A outfit Roma (The Scotsman).
However, there has now been an update on the future of the left-back from a very close source indeed.
The Latest: Barisic to stay at Ibrox
Apparently, a member of the 28-year-old’s family has revealed where the player’s future lies (Sportske Novosti).
Contrary to reports, Barisic is set to stay with the 55-time Scottish champions and will therefore not be making a switch to Italy any time soon.
The Verdict: Boost for Gerrard
This is no doubt a boost for Steven Gerrard and everyone at the club. Since making the move to Ibrox, Barisic has been a player the boss can rely on. Not only that, he has shown his attacking threat – he has provided a huge 33 assists in 117 games (Transfermarkt).
Will Barisic still be at Rangers next season?
He has come in for a criticism for his start to this season (via Ibrox News), but it was from his corner that Filip Helander scored the only goal of the game against Celtic at the weekend. Keeping him at the club is paramount, and it seems the Gers have done that for now.
In other news, this ex-Rangers man appears to complete shock transfer.
