Report: Assist king ‘happy’ at Rangers despite links with AC Milan and Roma

By Oliver Fisher -

Rangers full-back Borna Barisic has decided to remain with the Scottish club beyond January amid links with AC Milan and Roma, a report claims.

Last season, the defender was the third-choice left-back at Ibrox behind Jon Flanagan and Andy Halliday. However, Barisic has been in good form for the Glasgow side so far this season, amassing 13 assists in all competitions including two in Sunday’s Old Firm win over Celtic.

Calciomercato.it reported on Monday that a number of Premier League sides are monitoring the former Dinamo Zagreb left-back, however in Serie A it is Milan and Roma who are also keeping an eye on proceedings.

He is touted as a possible deputy to Theo Hernandez and as a replacement for Ricardo Rodriguez, who looks set to depart Milan after two-and-a-half years at the club.

However, it appears that Barisic will not be an option as the Daily Star are reporting that the Croatian has made it clear he wishes to remain at Rangers.

The 27-year-old does not want to move in January having had a stellar first half of the campaign, while a source close to Barisic told the Daily Record: “There is interest from many clubs but he is happy at Rangers.”
