Report: Rangers are set to be without 26-year-old for Celtic clash

With less than a week before Rangers take on Celtic in the Scottish Premiership, the Gers could be without the service of Borna Barisic.

Barisic limped out of Croatia’s Euro 2020 qualifier with Hungary less than half an hour into the game on Sunday, in what the Daily Record suggest could be a muscle injury in his leg.

He has established himself as an integral part of Steven Gerrard’s defensive unit, and the fact that he will reportedly be missing against Celtic will be a big blow for the Gers.

Should Barisic be deemed not fit enough to play against Celtic, Rangers will have to pick between Lee Wallace and Andy Halliday to fill in at left-back.

Barisic’s injury absence means Rangers may be unable to field their preferred starting eleven against an in-form Celtic side, and in a game that is a must win for the Gers, that will be far from ideal.
