amie Barjonas has made nine league appearances in for the Rangers first team.
However, none of those have come this season.
He spent the first half of the campaign on loan at Bury in EFL League Two. Unfortunately, though, unlike the increasingly impressive Jordan Rossiter, he failed to make his mark with the Shakers.

After just four substitute appearances in the league, he returned to Ibrox in January. Yet, it didn’t take long to find him a new temporary home and he joined Raith Rovers before the month was out.
So far in SPFL League One, he’s accumulated eleven appearances and scored twice.
The first of those, which was also his first senior goal, was an absolute stunner of an effort from long range.
He’s been a fairly regular fixture in midfield, helping the Rovers book a playoff spot for potential promotion to the Championship.

Ibrox future uncertain

However, while he has performed solidly, his displays are unlikely to have Steven Gerrard regretting the decision to loan him out.
In fact, with just a year left on his Ibrox deal [Transfermarkt], Barjonas could find it difficult to get another chance at Ibrox.
With Glen Kamara, Steven Davis, Ryan Jack, Scott Arfield and Ross McCrorie, the Gers are particularly well stocked in midfield.
Furthermore, Greg Docherty and Jordan Rossiter will also return in the summer. Those two look to be ahead of the 20-year-old in the pecking order.

For now, all Barjonas can do is keep his head down.
If he performs well and helps guide Raith to the second tier, that can only work in his favour.
Perhaps a new short-term deal and another loan move is the best he can hope for in the summer. It’s clear that he’s reaching an important age though, and just like Kyle Bradley, the next few months could be decisive for his Rangers career.
