Many Glasgow Rangers fans have been waxing lyrical about Brandon Barker after he scored an impressive goal on loan at Oxford United.
The Gers winger made the move to the English League One outfit on a temporary basis in January and he was in action against Crewe Alexandra this weekend. The U’s were in top form as they prevailed 6-0 and Barker netted a fantastic goal, running from his own half before striking the ball into the back of the net.
The 24-year-old has done relatively well since returning south of the border, scoring three times and providing four assists in 18 matches for Oxford (Transfermarkt). Whether he returns to the 55-time Scottish champions remains to be seen, but he at least appears to be enjoying his football and is showing his ability in the English third tier.
Does Barker have a future at Rangers?
Many Gers fans were delighted with the goal and took to social media platform Twitter to share their thoughts on the impressive strike. Some even drew outlandish comparisons with players such as Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo, both of whom have scored spectacular solo goals in their careers.
Let’s see what the fans had to say about the strike from Barker below
“Like prime Ronaldo”
“That is outstanding”
“best player we own.”
“Brandon Barker or Gareth Bale?”
“hero, bring him home”
“Boys a great wee player, that bit of confidence just helps build the kinda players that can do it for us in the future”
