📢 BORNA BORNA BORNA BARISIC! 📢
🆕 #RangersFC are delighted to confirm Croatian full-back Borna Barisic has signed a new contract at the club.

The 27-year-old left-back has committed to the ‘Gers for another four seasons, ending any fears of an exit from Ibrox after he was linked with a potential move to Serie A side Roma earlier this month (as per Sunday Post).
The Croatian joined Rangers from Osijek in his homeland in August 2018 and, after making just 16 Premiership appearances in his first season in Glasgow, he has become an integral part of Steven Gerrard’s line-up this term. He was ever-present in their Europa League group campaign and has started 18 of their 22 league games so far (as per TransferMarkt), while his tally of 14 assists is the highest among the Light Blues squad.
Gerrard told rangers.co.uk that Barisic “has the support of the fans because of his performances on the pitch”, with the club’s director of football Ross Wilson adding: “He loves playing for Rangers and it’s a pleasure to see the professionalism that he displays every day with Steven and the coaching staff on the training pitch and around the training centre.”
These Rangers fans took to Twitter to share their glee at the Croatian’s contract extension:
