Steven Gerrard has made a slightly aggressive hint at star defender Borna Barisic after announcing the Croat was only to confirm fitness if he really was rather than focusing on ‘ego’.
The international has been a revelation this season, giving Rangers the player we signed, but one thing he has rarely struck us as is egotistical, so we’re not sure why Stevie is taking this angle to pseudo-confront him just before the final.
A comment on the site did suggest something related to this that we’ll look at properly soon, but it’s just a rather strange way to encourage a player.
We dearly hope Borna will be fit. We’d take a 50% fit version over Flanagan in truth.
