A member of Borna Barisic’s family has reportedly come forward with information about reports he’s to join Roma, and announced all stories are false.
Croatian outlet Sportske Novosti has tonight printed the alleged truth about Barisic, and it appears claims of his imminent departure are some distance from fact.
So, there we now know there was absolute truth to his departure from Scotland on Sunday evening, but this outlet alleges it was a plane to Croatia’s international camp, and not to a medical in Italy.
If these words are accurate, Barisic is going nowhere. The source went on:
This is all very interesting stuff, but the bit we’re still at a loss for is why he had such an emotional time of it at the end of the Old Firm in a way we’ve never seen before from the Croat.
A lot of fans are just saying he ‘gets it’, and yes he does, but it doesn’t explain why he picked the first Old Firm of the season to have such an emotional ‘farewell’ with the fans on his own.
Certainly an intriguing story and an interesting twist.
