Rangers loanee Jamie Barjonas scores on Raith Rovers debut

Young Rangers midfielder Jamie Barjonas, nearly steered his adopted side to victory on Saturday afternoon.
The 20-year-old joined Raith Rovers on Tuesday, on a loan deal until the summer.
It’s his second spell away from Ibrox this season, having spent several months at English League Two club Bury, earlier in the season.

That first stint away didn’t go as well as would have been hoped.

He only started four matches for The Shakers, and didn’t manage to get himself on the scoresheet.
His time at Raith got off on a much more positive note.

Making his debut for the Scottish third tier outfit, he opened the scoring in the 34th minute.
Picking the ball up and shooting from distance, his effort beat Marc McCallum and nestled in the bottom right corner.

For some time, it looked as though that would be enough to secure a crucial three points in the promotion race.
Yet, veteran striker John Baird scored a late equaliser to spoil the young Ger’s day.
Still, a positive start to life at The Rovers for Barjonas.
Importantly, it looks as though he’ll get more game time during this second loan spell and at this early stage of his career, that should be very beneficial for his development.
