Borna Barisic hasn’t taken long to impress Rangers supporters after an excellent first 45 minutes on his debut at Ibrox this afternoon.
Steven Gerrard wasted no time in throwing him into the starting eleven after he signed last week and it’s paying off so far.
The Croatian has been crucial in establishing the 2-0 half-time lead against St Mirren, getting forward with pace and power and producing a solid delivery in the final third too.
It was his cross from a set-piece that allowed Connor Goldson to head home for the second of the afternoon, after Alfredo Morelos opened the scoring with a cool finish.
Of course, it isn’t Barisic’s first game at Ibrox this season after shining for Osijek when the Croatian side visited Glasgow a couple of weeks ago.
His performances in that tie led to his move to Rangers and although it’s clearly very early in his career at the club, his capture looks to be an inspired bit of business.
These fans have decided he is a great buy already, taking to Twitter to share their thoughts…

Barisic looks far too good to be sitting on the bench. If he's fit & available he'll play imo
