Rangers defender Borna Barisic has insisted he is over his injury nightmare – and admits he has to improve his performances.
The Croatian has had a torrid time since joining from NK Osijek over the summer.
Barisic has suffered a number of injuries and was criticised by manager Steven Gerrard recently, speaking to the Daily Record.
“I feel very good and everything is good with my muscles,” Barisic told Rangers TV.
“I need to improve my form which will come with games and it will happen in the future.”
Barisic has made 18 appearances for the Light Blues – missing a further 16 through injury.
When he has featured, he’s really impressed and shown why the Gers were so keen to sign him.
Hopefully, the worst is past and he can kick on and cement a regular first-team place.
Barisic’s driving runs and threatening crosses have caused all sorts of problems for opposition defenders.
Despite him limited appearances, Barisic has contributed 7 assists for Steven Gerrard’s side.
With a trip to Pittodrie on Wednesday night to face Aberdeen, keeping Barisic fit is crucial for Gerrard’s squad.
The Croatian international is likely to have a huge role in the outcome of the title, if he can avoid injury.
His partnership with Ryan Kent down the left gets stronger with every game and is a really potent attacking threat.
