What next for Brandon Barker? Rangers forgotten man stews in Ibrox wilderness as big bucks contract nears the end

For all the astute signings Rangers have made in recent years, with Ross Wilson heading up their recruitment drive, there were some strange ones under former transfer chief Mark Allen.

The likes of Jake Hastie, Jordan Jones and George Edmundson have come and gone with their impact barely being felt, and you'd be forgiven for forgetting Greg Stewart was ever at Ibrox.

Perhaps the strangest of all though is the case of Brandon Barker. The winger was signed in the summer of 2019 for a fee believed to be around £300k, having impressed with Hibs after joining from Manchester City on loan.

Since that move though he's made just six Premiership starts and Barker appears to be very much the forgotten man of Ibrox. Under first Steven Gerrard then Gio van Bronckhorst he's failed to make a single appearance and, incredibly, the 25-year-old has made the bench just once this season.Barker was an unused substitute against Livingston in the Premier Sports Cup quarter-final but other than that hasn't made a single squad.It's clear that, like Hastie who looks set to return from his loan spell at Partick Thistle, there is no future for the winger at Rangers.What does the future hold for Barker though, with clubs offered very little opportunity to see what he can do?The first thing to note is that the 25-year-old is out of contract in the summer, so is free to negotiate an exit this month.That may well be a crucial factor, with previous reports stating that the difficulty in offloading Barker had a lot to do with his contract.Former sporting director Allen is said to have handed the winger a lucrative deal, having known him well from Manchester City.
