Borna Barisic suffers injury ahead of international duty

There is always a concern when players head on international duty and it appears Rangers now have one of their own.

According to Croatia boss Zlatko Dalic, as per Vecernji List, Borna Barisic has a muscle rupture, which will not bode well for Steven Gerrard.

The left-back had to be taken off in his last match for the Light Blues with a hamstring injury he suffered against Livingston.

However, it remains to be seen how serious the latest injury is, as he continues to remain with the national side setup for their Nations League meeting with England.

Dalic revealed the situation was not good, as he listed a number of concerns he had, which included Barisic.

Speaking to Vecernji, he said: “Situation is not good, Marcelo Brozovic did not play on Sunday for Inter, Borna Barisic has a rupture of muscle, Ivan Santini still has a great crank on his leg since the game with Dinamo, Lovre Kalinic has big problems with his knee.

“Sime Versaljko last night he played for Inter after a month’s pause and again felt the knee pain.

“This is the current situation, and for a few hours I will know who we will count on and whether I will call new players.”

The Verdict:

Rangers will be hopeful the latest setback to Borisic is not too serious and that he will be okay to return to action in the near future.

The Light Blues will return to their Scottish Premiership campaign in just under a fortnight with a trip to Hamilton Academical and Gerrard will want the Croatian to be available.

If the defender is not fit for the game against England, he will likely return to Ibrox, where they will be able to give their own assessment and have a clearer idea on the situation.
