‘He’s No Ryan Kent’ ‘He’s Fast, That’s It. Shocking Signing’ Fans On Twitter Disappointed As Rangers Close In On Ninth Summer Signing

Rangers are close to signing Manchester City winger Brandon Barker, according to reports in the UK. The 22-year-old is expected to sign on a permanent basis with a deal set to be finalised by the end of the week.

The Englishman has spent the last four seasons out on loan at the likes of NAC Breda, Rotherham, Hibernian and Preston but he has made just one senior appearance for City. Fans on Twitter are not convinced that that the club need another winger:

Barker generally plays on the left-wing and will provide competition for both Jordan Jones and Jamie Murphy. The deal will mean that Rangers would have given up any hope of signing Liverpool’s Ryan Kent.

Barker’s time at Hibernian during the 2017/18 season was unremarkable, scoring just twice and providing five assists in 30 appearances. His spell at Preston last campaign was even less impressive, starting just nine games for the English Championship club, and scoring two goals.
