Rangers fans have been praising Croatian international full-back star Borna Barisic as he continued his much-improved form in the 3-0 win over Dundee.

Appearing to carry a niggling injury going into the new campaign, like many player Borna has not quite hit the heights of last season so far in this one.

But as the former NK Osijek captain’s showing against Dundee proves, Barisic is getting back to basics and building up a head of steam heading into a challenging period of the season.

The 29-year-old left-back certainly looks like he’s improved his concentration and is focusing first on doing the little things right before looking to exert his technical influence on the game.

Too often Borna Barisic would be caught failing to stop a cross coming into the box or in going out to commit to attackers, often sacrificing fundamental principles of his role to attack.

Perhaps a sign of his improving fitness, the defender’s showing against Dundee once again encapsulated a player reformed and followed on from an impressive defensive showing against Hibs.

We all know how lethal Borna can be with his deliveries and his striking – the left-back even tested the Dundee goalie from long range in the 3-0 win – but it’s his bread and butter which is endearing him to fans as of late.

Taking to Twitter, supporters have commended Borna Barisic with the Rangers support believing the defender has turned a corner:


The win over Dundee makes it four from four for Giovanni van Bronckhorst and next up for the Gers is a trip to France to play Lyon in the Europa League.

The Gers are already qualified for the next round of the tournament and the likes of Borna Barisic may be eyeing a rest against the Ligue 1 side.

Speaking of Borna Barisic, a return to form also comes amid £8m exit links to the Premier League with an Ibrox reunion touted in the press.
