Glasgow Rangers must cash in on Brandon Barker in January

According to Football Insider, Glasgow Rangers are ready to offload out-of-sorts outcast Brandon Barker, if the right offer arrives in January.

What’s the word?

Rangers romped to a 4-0 win over Ross County to extend their lead over their arch-rivals Celtic at the top of the Scottish Premiership but Barker was nowhere to be seen as he was left as an unused substitute on the bench.

Would you keep or sell Brandon Barker?

Keep!

Keep!

Sell...

Sell...

It’s claimed that the 54-time Scottish champions could cash in on the wide man when the winter transfer market opens in just under a month’s time.

Get him gone, Gers

As regular readers of this column will no doubt be aware, we said last month that we think the Gers could be onto a winner with the former England U20 international winger, who currently earns wages worth £8,500-per-week.

The trouble is, he has largely failed to make the most of these opportunities to prove himself, after he limped off the pitch in the 4-0 win over Falkirk in the Betfred Cup.

Rangers signed Barker from Manchester City on a three-year deal in 2019, as he had previously plied his trade with Rotherham United and NAC Breda, before scoring twice in 30 games for Hibernian.

Since then, he has struggled to establish himself as a first-team regular starter under Gerrard, having fallen down the pecking order behind the likes of Ianis Hagi, Jordan Jones and Kemar Roofe in recent weeks.

Who was top scorer during the 2018/19 season?

Jones’ suspension seemed to have presented the 24-year-old to finally prove himself once and for all, but another meek display may have struck the final blow, as Glasgow Live gave a fairly damning indictment of his performance.

In 10 appearances so far this season, Barker has scored twice and failed to register a single assist, whilst he is averaging fewer than one key pass and one dribble per game, via WhoScored.

It’s about time Ross Wilson starts to sort out some of the deadwood, and he may not have to look much further than the left-winger, who has struggled to make much of an impression since he first arrived at Ibrox.
