On the internet, many of the Glasgow Rangers fans are saying that they are expecting Croatian left back Borna Barisic to play more often for their ‘Light Blues’ starting line up.

They are pointing out that he plays regularly for a world class international side full of top class players, so he must be good enough to be a Rangers first choice defender. 

Perhaps Steven Gerrard knows better than the loyal club supporters what is the best way to utilise the talents of Barisic. 

Playing him at left back on Thursday evenings against Feyenoord, Young Boys and Porto in the Europa League Group Stages, might be what’s on Gerrard’s mind.

Can Rangers kick off at Ibrox this week by winning all three points against Feyenoord?

The boss and the fans will certainly be hoping so, but it may depend on Ryan Jack being fit to start the match in midfield alongside Steven Davis and Joe Aribo.

If Allan McGregor has another great night and the rest of the defence play exceptionally well, that would help enormously in Rangers earning no goals scored against. If they can achieve that target, only one goal would be enough to get the maximum points.

It would be a terrific start to the Group Stages if Rangers can gain a win to set them up from this challenging, ‘Group of Death’.

It looks like £7.5m Ryan Kent could miss all three European matches with a hamstring injury, so all the other forwards will have to step up.

Rangers will probably require Colombian centre forward Alfredo Morelos to bag some goals and to be on target as often as possible, if the Ibrox club are to be in the top two in the group, to qualify for the last 32.

Liverpool loanee Sheyi Ojo and Scott Arfield will be expected to chip in with some goals, and hopefully Aribo can nick a few as well.
