English League Two side Oldham want to secure Rangers midfielder Jamie Barjonas on a loan deal, according to the Scottish Sun.

The paper reports that the Latics want to striker a deal for the youngster despite Rangers’ much-publicised lack of strength in depth in the middle of the park.

Gers boss Gerrard is said to be keen to get Barjonas exposure to first-team football and any prospective deal could be helped by the fact ex-Gerrard teammate Harry Kewell is in charge at Oldham.

Rangers Academy graduate Barjonas has previously had spells with Bury and Raith Rovers, whilst he spelt some time at Partick Thistle last season.


Oldham have started their campaign with two defeats and have yet to register a goal as Kewell looks foe solutions as the club strive to retain their English Football League status.


Should Barjonas move on – albeit on loan – he will be the third young Scottish midfielder to vacate Ibrox this summer despite a distinct lack of midfielders at the club.
