Rangers defender Borna Barisic has admitted that it was a “very special moment” for him as he scored his first goal for the club with a stunning free-kick in the 1-0 win over St. Mirren.
His 59th-minute free-kick was enough to seal the points and the defender insisted that he was happier to have won than scored.
“Very special moment for me,” Barisic told Rangers TV.
“I’m very happy because I scored a goal but happier we won and got three points at a hard place.
“It was very difficult for us, especially because of the weather and everywhere we go everyone plays 100% so it is never easy but the most important thing is three points and we came through.”
Since arriving from NK Osijek last summer, Barisic’s form has been nowhere near consistent enough and has led to Jon Flanagan forcing his way back into the side.
After the former Liverpool star sat out today’s game, it’ll be interesting to see how Gerrard’s side line up against Legia on Thursday night.
With Andy Halliday also in the mix, Barisic’s goal could just be the moment that helps turn his Rangers career around.
