“Never doubted him” – A lot of Gers supporters have expressed their relief that Borna Barisic may be starting to prove the doubters wrong – after he scored a superb free-kick to seal a 1-0 win for Rangers.
Barisic has received a lot of abuse since he joined the Gers and it looked like he had slipped down to third choice left-back but on Sunday Steven Gerrard handed him his opportunity and he grasped it with both hands.
The Gers were struggling to break down a tough St Mirren unit but when Rangers were awarded a free-kick 25-yards out – up stepped the Croatian international to bend a delightful effort into the top corner past Vaclav Hladky.
These Gers fans are thrilled for Barisic.
