Croatia international Borna Barisic has signed for Rangers from NK Osijek on a four-year deal.

Barisic underwent a medical on Monday after a fee was agreed between the two club which could rise to £2.2m and he now becomes manager Steven Gerrard's 11th signing of the summer.

Rangers faced Croatian side Osijek recently in the play-off stages of the Europa League, in which they triumphed over two legs.

Gerrard appears to have been impressed with what he saw from the 25-year-old, who scored against Rangers, and set the move in motion.

The full-back hopes to prove his worth to the fans in the coming months.

"I think the most important thing is that in every game I give 100 per cent," Barisic told Rangers TV.

"I think the Rangers fans recognise that and I will give my heart for Ibrox - I think that is important.

"I want to give back for all the messages the fans have sent me, and all the belief the manager has shown me. I need to back all this up on the pitch, and I will do that."

Barisic was named in Croatia's preliminary 32 man squad for the 2018 World Cup in Russia but did not make the final 23.
