An enraged Barisic appears to raise his arm and lunge towards the fan before being ushered away by a security guard amid audible gasps from onlookers.

The incident occured after the 4-1 win over Kilmarnock on Sunday which saw Rangers cut the gap on league leaders Celtic back to three points ahead of the potentially title-defining Old Firm fixture at Celtic Park this Saturday. Barisic played the majority of the match before being replaced by substitute Ridvan Yilmaz in the 79th minute.

Barisic has been linked with a free transfer to Turkish side Trabszonspor this summer with his contract set to expire at the end of the season. The 31-year-old joined Rangers from NK Osijek for a reported fee of £2.2million in the summer of 2018.

To date, he has made 235 appearances for the Ibrox club, scoring 10 goals.

The footage has prompted a mixed response from supporters on X with one asking, “What sort of ‘fan’ stays behind to abuse players after a 4-1 win?,” while another commented: “A professional footballer can’t react like that to your own fans or anyone he should be finsiehd after that.”
