Borna Barisic has penned an emotional farewell to Rangers and told supporters that he loves them.

The left-back ended a six-year stay at Ibrox when he was released following the conclusion of last season.

His contract expired and wasn’t renewed, and now he poised to sign for Trabzonspor in Turkey with former Gers pal John Lundstram also tipped to join him. 

In 2018, Steven Gerrard brought him to Glasgow, where he quickly became a pivotal figure, providing a significant attacking threat from the full-back position during his initial seasons.

However, in recent years, his impact has somewhat diminished, and last season saw Ridvan Yilmaz emerge as the preferred choice for that role.

Despite this change under new boss, Philippe Clement, the 31-year-old holds fond memories of his time in Scotland and expresses deep affection for the club.

And he has shared a heartfelt message with the fans.

"It's never easy to say goodbye especially to something that means that much to you like Rangers FC means to me and my family," Barisic wrote in a poignant Instagram post.

"I want to thank everyone in the club and around the club for everything that you did for me and my family in last six years. 

"Thank you to all my teammates, coaching staff and all staff in the club for everything. I made friends and memories for life at the end just want to say thank you to the all fans because our relationship was fantastic always and always will be.

"I will always follow you and support Rangers. Never surrender my friends, love you from deep of my heart."
