Following Rangers’ brilliant 1-1 draw away to Porto in the Europa League, fans have heaped praise on defender Borna Barisic for a phenomenal equalising assist.
After three group games, Steven Gerrard’s men find themselves second in the table with three games remaining – with a home encounter against their Portuguese opponents next on the agenda in Europe.
It was a crucial result in Group G, giving Rangers a slight advantage in their bid to qualify for the knockout rounds.
There were many star performers for the Gers – Filip Helander, Alfredo Morelos, Ryan Jack to name a few – but one player certainly getting deserved plaudits was defender Borna Barisic.
Barisic put the ball on a plate for Morelos to equalise with a De Bruyne-esque cross.
Understandably, fans were ecstatic with the contribution – with that moment of quality seemingly coming from nowhere.
Here’s how they praised the Croatian for one of his finest moments:
