Following the nonsense media ‘lies’ (shall we call them lies) about Giovanni and Borna earlier this week, we want to focus your attention on the truth, about what our manager REALLY said about Borna, about the situation with the Croat.
You’ll notice on Ibrox Noise we’ve not really had a go at him in the way some have – what he said in the press conference a couple of weeks ago did him no favours, but we tried to support it anyway because he was just being honest. And we do like candour.
And the nightmare he had v Celtic was probably the worst 45 minutes of his career – no one needs to tell him how poor it was, he hurts more from it than anyone.
And his manager wants to put his arm around his star LB and help him through this difficult period.
Whether it’s confidence, lack of focus, or good old fashioned loss of form, the Croat isn’t at his best at the moment, and Gio addressed it:
We’re on Borna’s side. He, on form, is by some distance the best LB we have, and his crossing is world class. He’s been subdued in his more defensive role under Gio, but has gone inside himself a little the past month, but you don’t just turn your back on players when they have one or two poor matches.
Gio’s approach is right, we keep giving the man support, and hopefully he gets his way back.
He’s a little lost at the moment. Time to find him again.
