Rangers: Brandon Barker wages caused a problem -Rangers Transfer Rumours

According to Football Insider, Brandon Barker’s big wages were the problem behind him not leaving Glasgow Rangers during the summer transfer window.

The Lowdown: Barker allowed to leave

As the transfer window approached its end, Rangers made a decision on the future of the 24-year-old winger.

How well do you remember these Rangers signings? First up, where did the Ibrox outfit sign Michael Mols from?

They decided that he would be allowed to leave Ibrox, but in the end, no deal materialised.

The Latest: Wages

As per this latest report, Rangers were unable to offload Barker due to his high wages.

The former Manchester City man was signed when Mark Allen was still the sporting director, and he is said to be earning £8,500 per week at the club (salarysport.com), a salary agreed by the aforementioned Allen.

The Verdict: Shame for all involved

This is a shame for all involved. Barker made just 13 appearances for the Gers last campaign before being loaned out to Oxford United, and he has yet to feature at all this term (Transfermarkt).

Clearly, he is not a part of Steven Gerrard’s plans and therefore has little prospect of playing on a regular basis this season.

Should Brandon Barker leave Rangers?

Yes

Yes

No

No

For Rangers, too, it is unfortunate. They now still have a player on their books who is costing them a significant amount of money. There is still another transfer window to come before the end of the season – perhaps then, a solution can be found.
