First-team full-back Borna Barisic has been spotted back in Rangers training ahead of the club’s Europa League clash with Lech Poznan.
The Croatian international went off in the first half of Rangers’ 2-0 win over Standard Liege in their first game of the Europa League groups last week and missed the weekend’s 2-0 win over Livingston.
But in a training video upload to the club’s official YouTube channel Barisic was spotted entering the training pitch at the Ibrox club’s training centre.
The defender was also spotted in the background as Rangers unveiled training pictures of new signing and South African international Bongani Zungu for the first time.

But in the Steven Gerrard press conference released on the club’s official channels leading up to the game the Ibrox gaffer made no mention of injury problems ahead of the match against the Poles.
As a result, this means at present it is unclear if the 27-year-old former NK Osijek captain will be available for the Europa League clash at Ibrox.
Barisic has been deputised by the very capable young Calvin Bassey in his absence with the 20-year-old ex-Leicester City full-back showing a lot of promise in a Rangers shirt.
Should the youngster be called upon there’s no reason to believe he cannot fill the boots of the Croatian but assist king Barisic is undoubtedly the club’s first choice at left-back.
Here’s how we predict Rangers will line up for the match as the club hope to make it two wins in two games in the Europa League group stages.
