Rangers’ Borna Barisic has been taken off injured only half an hour into Croatia’s ongoing match with Hungary. We do not know the full extent of the injury.
The Rangers left-back went into the game off the back of a superb performance in the first leg. He earned the plaudits of the Croatian media and it looked like a major confidence boost.
Injuries have plagued the former NK Osijek captain’s first season at Rangers. He just doesn’t seem to have had any luck with them.
Only last week he was speaking about how his injury hell was now behind him [quoted Daily Record].
Barisic a major doubt for Old Firm
The left-back is made of glass and the only level of consistency he’s had all season is how consistent he’s been on the treatment table.
Rangers fans will be hoping this latest disappointment won’t rule him for the foreseeable future. Barisic will now be a major doubt for the upcoming Old Firm match.
Now it looks like he’ll be watching on from the sidelines after the Croatian picked up yet another knock.
Supporter’s patience might be beginning to wear thin with Barisic’s stumbling form and injury worries. But should we look to this iconic Rangers star for reassurance?
