Report: Gerrard to allow Rangers midfielder to leave Ibrox on temporary deal

Glasgow Rangers central midfielder Jamie Barjonas is reportedly once again set for a loan spell next season, as per a report published in Daily Record.

The Scottish club are currently going through their pre-season activities in order to get ready for the 2020-2021 campaign after a difficult time in the previous season, which ended abruptly due to the coronavirus crisis.

As per the latest report, Barjonas, who has just returned after spending 12 months with Scottish second-tier outfit Partick Thistle FC, is once again looking set to leave Rangers on a loan spell.

The report stated that the Scotland U19 international has failed to break into the first team and will leave the club in order to get senior minutes under his belt, despite having just 12 months left on his current contract with Rangers.

The news is perhaps surprising considering the fact that Gers manager Steven Gerrard heaped praise on the 21-year-old during the pre-season friendly tournament in France.

“I’m happy for Jamie,” Gerrard was quoted by The Sun.

“It’s the first time since I’ve been in a first-team match that he’s really shown his personality.

“We know he’s got this, we think he’s better than what he’s shown.”

Midfield is one area that Rangers have quality in, with the likes of Ryan Jack, Glen Kamara, Steven Davis and Scott Arfield all vying for a first-team place at Ibrox.

As such, while Barjonas is an exciting talent, he may be best served moving elsewhere in an attempt to secure more playing time.
