Rangers left-back Borna Barisic feels he is twice the player he was last season according to an interview published in The Sun via The Rangers Podcast.
Is Lawrence Shankland good enough for Rangers?
“It’s an unbelievable feeling when you play and hear your song and how they support you. That’s very important and I just want to say thank you.”
The Croatian international had a stop-start first season at Ibrox and even early in this season and The Herald questioned who should be given the starting role.
Barisic has transformed his Rangers career with a string of impressive performances. He started with a match-winning goal against St Mirren, an outstanding display against Feyenoord (noted by the Daily Record) in the Europa League and another solid turnout against Aberdeen where his inch-perfect cross was headed home by Alfredo Morelos.
So impressive has his transformation been that the Ibrox faithful have now got a song for him as reported in The Daily Record, one that Barisic is happy to hear.
Barisic is in buoyant mood ahead of this Thursday’s Europa League fixture against Young Boys, the result and performance against Feyenoord in week one giving him confidence that Rangers can match anyone at this level.
He said: “I have watched a couple of their games in the last two years and they are very good, especially when they play on a plastic pitch in Switzerland.
“We have a very tough group but we can compete with everyone, and we are going to Switzerland to do that.”
Rangers fans will likely be delighted that the £2.2m signing from Osijek is finally showing not only consistency but the ability that saw him brought to Ibrox in the first place. Where left-back was once a problem position given the fact there was seemingly no set option there, it is now one of the safest spots in the team if his current form is anything to go by.
