Steven Gerrard’s Rangers had to settle for a point in a physical and exciting battle at Fir Park, after Motherwell equalised in closing moments of the game.
Going behind in the match against Stephen Robinson’s side twice, the Gers responded superbly in a mammoth first half during which five of the six goals in the 3-3 draw were scored.
The usually reliable Gers defence were founding wanting with errors resulting in three very soft goals being conceded.
However, inspired by the likes of Borna Barisic they found themselves back in the match, eventually taking the lead through Ovie Ejaria shortly before the interval.
Barisic was superb throughout, providing a constant threat down the left hand side and providing a quality of delivery that gave Motherwell all sorts of problems.
The Croatian international is looking like one of the best captures of the entire summer transfer window, which is impressive considering the club have made a dozen of them.
Fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts on his afternoon…
Barisic's crossing ability is unreal, doesn't even need pace on the ball, can rocket a dead ball wherever he wants.
