After earning a comfortable 2-0 victory over ten-man Hamilton, Rangers moved three points clear at the top of the Scottish Premiership on Saturday evening.
Steven Gerrard’s side scored a quick-fire double in the first-half, with Ianis Hagi and James Tavernier getting themselves on the score-sheet within five minutes of each other.
Scott McMann then received his second yellow of the night mid-way through the second period as any hopes of a Hamilton comeback were dashed.
But whilst Rangers eased to a routine win, there was one player who Gers fans didn’t seem to be too impressed with: Brandon Barker. As per Sofascore, both of his attempts on goal were off target, he completed just one dribble and lost possession 12 times.
And after seeing his performance, Rangers fans took to Twitter to share their reactions.
Playing with Brandon Barker is like playing with ten men.

A couple of Gers fans insisted that Barker simply has to be sold, with one supporter urging the club to replace him with a new right-winger as soon as possible.
Brandon Barker must go

Brandon Barker is woeful. Sell him and buy a RW ASAP.

After being handed his first start of the new season, it’s fair to say Barker hasn’t really given Gerrard a headache over whether he should be playing or not.
Last season saw him make just 13 appearances across all competitions, scoring just once, and unless he steps his game up considerably, then he won’t be in the starting line-up for much longer.
