Rangers fans continue to show their support for Borna Barisic on Twitter after witnessing him in action for Croatia whilst on international duty.
A fantastic victory for Borna Barišić and Croatia. https://t.co/sbCbws2vhJ

The left-back played the whole 90 minutes for his nation as they managed to ease past Slovakia 4-0 as they sit joint-level with Hungary at the top of their Euro 2020 qualifying group.
Having established himself as one of the first names on the teamsheet for his country, the 26-year-old will now be looking to do the same at Ibrox and finally make the most of his £2.2m move from NK Osijek last summer.
Indeed, Barisic has the opportunity to do so following the injury to Jon Flanagan, whilst the well-taken free-kick he scored against St. Mirren in Scottish Premiership action may have given him a lift of confidence.
It had recently been reported that the defender had been impressing Steven Gerrard in training with his attitude and performances, however that will likely only count for so much if he is unable to do that on the pitch when it matters.
However, it would seem Rangers fans are convinced that he has what it takes to feature regularly for them and it would appear that they can not wait to see him in action for them in the near future.
Here are some of their reactions…
The guy scored the winning goal v St Mirren a lovely n sweet free kick then gets benched for the tarriers game. Guys class. Needs more trust and backing all round and I think he’ll thrive for us.

Played very well, Croatia controlled the game easily. He’s been brilliant for Croatia as of late, always running down the wing and his crossing was good tonight. Hopefully he is the starting left back for us for the near future.

I really hope Borna Barisic takes this chance and grabs the bull by the horns to make that left back role his. Clearly a talent. Would love nothing better than to be proven wrong about him. C’mon Borna, we are all behind you

Barisic strolling it yet again for Croatia
Swear he’s a confidence player. 4/5 game run and he’ll come good for us
Just now sure which 4/5 games it will be before he comes good pic.twitter.com/U71nnHMANa

But Borna Barisic isn’t good enough for Rangers definitely a player there. https://t.co/1GswMfvTGg

Barisic showing up well for Croatia again, hopefully Flanagans injury means he’ll get a decent run. He looked much more confident vs Legia before his head knock.
