Rangers fans confident Barjonas will boost first-team chances with Bury loan

A lot has been made of Rangers’ new arrivals this summer as manager Steven Gerrard has attempted to put his own stamp on the team.

The former Liverpool captain has brought in 11 new players and the club continue to be linked to new talent.

One man who has been shown the door – albeit on a temporary basis – is academy player Jamie Barjonas.

The 19-year-old has developed his game with the Gers since joining their youth setup in 2008.

Now is the time for the central midfielder to gain first-team experience, hence why the club have agreed a loan deal with League Two side Bury.

The teenager will compete for a place in the team until January, which is when the arrangement ends.

Gerrard has been focusing on youth since becoming Rangers boss, but it seems that it is too soon for Barjonas to make an impression.

Plenty of supporters believe that the midfielder will return with the aim of pushing for a first-team spot under Gerrard.
