‘Can Only Boost His Confidence’ ‘An Enigma At Ibrox’ Fans Perplexed As Rangers Defender Continues To Get More Game Time For His Country

Rangers left-back Borna Barisic started for Croatia once again in their 1-1 draw against Azerbaijan yesterday. The 26-year-old also played the full 90 minutes of the 4-0 win versus Slovakia on Friday night.

Despite being a regular at international level, the defender is still not a guaranteed starter under Gers boss Steven Gerrard and many fans on Twitter are wondering what the secret is to get the best out of the Croatian:

Jon Flanagan started the Old Firm derby but the fullback is predominantly right-footed and the Light Blues missed the balance on the left-hand side that Barisic can provide.

However, the Croatian international is not great defensively and his lack of discipline can let him down at times. Will he ever become a consistent performer for Rangers?

At the moment, it doesn’t look likely but if he can find the consistency he seems to possess when playing for his country, his career at Ibrox may see an upturn.
