Rangers fans react to young midfielder Jamie Barjonas' loan move to Bury

Rangers officially announced that youngster Jamie Barjonas has joined League Two side Bury on loan until January – and fans think it’s a move that suits all parties.

Barjonas, 19, has been with the Gers since 2008 having joined the club as a nine-year-old, and made his senior debut for the club in 2017 in a Scottish Premiership match with Partick Thistle.

He kicked on from there and made a handful of first team appearances last term, but Steven Gerrard has been chopping and changing since arriving in the hot seat in May, and evidently felt that opportunities would be limited for the talented teen in 2018/19.

Scotland youth international Barjonas will spend the first half of the season at Gigg Lane, before re-evaluating in January and deciding what the next step for him will be.

Bury manager Ryan Lowe said of his new midfield acquisition via the club’s official website: “I think when someone like Steven Gerrard recommends to you a midfielder with the career he has had then you don’t look twice at it; you’ve got to take it, and that’s what we’ve done.

“Jamie came down to train with us for a few days, and he was outstanding in training; he fitted the bill for what we are after. I’m really looking forward to working with him from now until January.”

Hopefully Barjonas can get some decent game time with the League Two side, with Gerrard clearly showing himself to be a big advocate for younger players, and some Rangers fans online have endorsed the move:
