Rangers fans absolutely loved the debut of Borna Barisic after signing for nearly £2million from NK Osijek last week.
Barisic made his debut at left-back in a solid 2-0 home win over St Mirren today. The Gers supporters saw what they were hoping for as he consistently bombed down the left-wing.
This therefore allowed Jon Flanagan to switch sides and operate down his more suitable right-back role. The difference was noticeable and effective as both men put in convincing displays.
However, it was Barisic who took the acclaim of the support on Twitter. Here’s a look at what was said about the Croatian stalwart:
Played not to bad again Rangers even with a player down.. Borna Barisic done very well for time he's was on the pitch great at set peaces and some great balls into box.. 🔴⚪🔵🇬🇧

Barisic looked good today, will be a top signing for us. Shame we can’t use him on Thursday 😫

Borna Barišić has a better left foot than Sean Goss

Absolutely love that about Barisic.. Thrown in there in front of a sold out Ibrox to make your debut.. Chases after Morelos to celebrate the opener then whips in a free kick to set up Goldson. What a way to get the fans on side early on 🇭🇷⚽️

Barisic arrives with huge potential, and has clearly made an early impact amongst the support. How he kicks on will be key however, with a host of big matches come up.
As a trip to Parkhead looms next month, Rangers can’t afford to look further than their trip to Maribor in the second leg of their Europa League qualifier on Thursday night.
