Brandon Barker has become the ninth signing of the summer for Rangers, and plenty of fans are delighted with their latest recruit.
It won’t be the 22-year-old’s first stint in Scotland, as he previously enjoyed a temporary spell at Hibs, scoring twice and setting up a further five in his 30 appearances in the capital.
The ex-Manchester City man isn’t the first winger to be brought to the club this summer though, as Steven Gerrard has looked to increase his quality out wide. Sheyi Ojo, Jake Hastie, Greg Stewart and Jordan Jones have all arrived as the Liverpool legend goes in search of his first managerial silverware.
And the supporters are delighted with the addition of Barker, even if they haven’t always felt that way about the young winger.
Upon hearing that he was nearing a deal to come to Ibrox, the fans weren’t particularly excited. Yet, it seems that they’ve changed their minds and look forward to seeing the wide-man in the Gers strip this campaign.
Here’s how the excited supporters reacted on Twitter…
Confident he’ll be a good player
