Croatian left-back Borna Barisic moved from Osijek to Glasgow Rangers in July and has made an immediate impression at Ibrox.
The Gers player was selected to play for Croatia against Portugal in Friday’s 1-1 friendly match, playing ahead of Dynamo Kiev’s Josip Pivaric, who was in the World Cup squad that made the final in Russia.
Rangers man Barisic played for the full 90 minutes, and should be very pleased with himself. He was up against Portugal’s danger man, Manchester City’s Bernardo Silva, and kept him quiet.
The World Cup 2018 finalists are building their team again and Barisic gave an impressive display, which saw him receive praise in his homeland.
The feeling amongst the Rangers supporters are that we stole him for only £1.5m and he will eventually be sold to a top English team for a decent profit.
Barisic’s versatility is also an asset for the Ibrox side, with the new man able to play at centre-half or in midfielder if needs be.
Rangers have now bought three players who were recently playing in Croatia, and the club are expecting them all to be a big success.
