Rangers attacker Fashion Sakala destroys Celtic full-back Josip Juranovic at Ibrox amid indulgent £20m links to the likes of Barcelona and Chelsea.

The Croatian international right-back, 27, had an impressive World Cup in Qatar as alongside Rangers star Borna Barisic the Balkans nation finished 3rd at the tournament.

But since the domestic game has returned Scottish football has been subjected to fawning reports aplenty surrounding the player who was absolutely torn a new one by Zambian international Sakala.

Rangers star Sakala was in impressive second half form and ever since Josip Juranovic replaced Greg Taylor midway through the first half, gave the defender a torrid time of it at Ibrox.

The Croatian was at fault for Rangers’ first goal, finding himself out of position as Sakala squared to Ryan Kent, whilst the defender was nutmegged in the run up to the Ibrox club’s second.

Fashion Sakala was again central to it as the attacker was fouled by clumsy Swedish defender Carl Starfelt.

As things would transpire, Rangers would concede late on the game to all but kill the club’s title hopes with the match finishing 2-2 but Sakala certainly showed the Celtic defender up on the day.

Josip Juranovic has impressed for Celtic since joining the club from Legia Warsaw but the notion this is a £20m player is as fanciful as it is indulgent from the usual corners of the Scottish media.

Whilst the likes of journalists from the Scottish Sun have slapped the price tag on the player by linking Barca, Atlético Madrid and Real Sociedad to the player, the Daily Mail have attached a more modest £8m price tag amid links to Chelsea.

But whatever the case, the right-back will have a hard time fishing himself out of Fashion Sakala’s pocket with the Rangers side tormenting the Croatian and guaranteed him a week of nightmares.
