19-year-old midfield prospect to depart Rangers in loan deal - report

Rangers youngster Jamie Barjonas is set to join Partick Thistle on a season long loan-deal, according to a report.

The Scottish Sun claims that the 19-year-old midfielder, who made five first-team appearances last season, is set to move to the side which were relegated from the Scottish Premiership last season.

Brajonas’s contract with the Gers lasts until 2020, and with the Ibrox midfield beginning to get overcrowded with players, Steven Gerrard and Mark Allen have decided that the player could do with some regular playing time, which he is not guaranteed at Ibrox.

Football Insider verdict

When you are at the age Jamie Barjonas is – 19-years-old – you want to play regular first-team football. After not featuring for the Gers in the whole of 2018, it is no shock that he wants to move on and get some regular playing time next season. The Light Blues must think they have a talent in Barjonas though, and he did sign that new contract last season. But since then he seems to have faded out of the picture completely, and his prospects of featuring under Steven Gerrard’s management looked remote. Of course, if Barjonas has an excellent season at Partick, then he will return to Ibrox perhaps with a chance of making it in the first-team, but with the number of midfielders currently on the books at Ibrox, it will have to be a wow of season. No doubt Gerrard and Mark Allen will be keeping an eye on the player’s development though, as he looks to play football on a regular basis.
