Barker was a bit part player at Hibs who flattered to deceive, i thought it was bizarre Rangers were even interested in him. Why would we want him?

I think Barker is absolute shite who's pace is his only weapon.

 

Ivan Sproule was better.

I’d rather Rangers kept hold of both and drained them of somewhere around £20k a week for the foreseeable future.

 

spot on!

Could Jones not be deployed in a more central attacking mid role? I reckon he would do well through the middle if need be. Don't think he would ever come here but would definitely improve us no doubt about that

Remember Stendel says he likes home grown youth players - I don’t expect our best young lads to be anything other than developed.

Agreed.  Only thing is they need to be good enough.  Want to be wrong here but was saying to my dad on Sunday watching the game that I have a feeling Henderson and especially Moore will bridge this wee gap for us, but won't do much more in a Hearts strip.  I think we'll see them replaced even quite soon and maybe fade away.  They give us energy and I love watching them, but neither have that we bit of composure or nouse to create something and that's maybe just what we lack on top of our endeavor.  The hope is Ryo or Donis have this for us (or Walker...).

 

I don't want that to happen, I just don't think they are as good as other options we have or can attain.  Irving is.  Hickey is.  The challenge for all the kids is to be a level above what Hearts can find in the market.  The challenge for Hearts is to develop players to be such.

Sproule, he was absolutely murder. Had forgotten all about him.

If Bongo or Daza could enter this thread with a wink and a vague hint to distract us from this pointless Jones/Barker chat that would be great...

 

Bongo Gdaza, eh? Great side back in the day...

Yip. 

 

Barker was very much like Mulraney.

Barker is very good at running fast in a straight line.  See Calum Morrison for more details.

The difference between Barker and these players is that I’ve seen barker beat more players that these two combined, and I’ve only seen him play against hearts. I’m happy to give a fast player that goes at players a chance. We’ve not had one in a while.

 

His final balls not great but have we seen evidence of Moore and Henderson’s final balls? They’ve both been brilliant for us without that cutting edge. 
 

It’s irrelevant though. I have faith in Whoever Stendel brings in. At this point, he could bring Pa Kujabi back to Scotland and I’d give him the benefit of the doubt 😃

Barker drives a brand new Range Rover and collects about 12k a week in wages.......the boys never kicked a ball in his life. Mental.

His run through the Airdrie defence and clip back for Naismith was different class.

Rangers signed too many wingers over the last 18 months and I’m guessing the guys being made surplus to requirements weren’t the choice of Gerrard but brought in by Mark Allen.


Nobody has publically questioned Rangers why Allen was signing players though.

Jones is good enough to get a move to the English championship,far better than your St Johnstone,Kilmarnock level. 

 

Jones has only played about 15 games total for any club other than Kilmarnock. If he is being moved on then he has failed when taking the step up to a club in the same division as Kilmarnock and St Johnstone. He is not considered good enough to play for the rangers against teams like St Johnstone or Kilmarnock? They are exactly his level.

Good point.

 

They have too many midfielders too.

 

The post match analysis was a bit off because Rangers have played like they did in other games. A lack of decisive midfield and missed chances.

I honestly think rangers signed the likes of Barker, Lafferty, Stewart, Jones even Kammara (although he turned out OK) were signed just so they couldn't do them harm. 

 

If not us, imagine even Aberdeen had picked them (Lafferty aside) up. 

I think Aberdeen wanted Barker and Stewart if not Jones as well. 

 

These signings reek of just signing them for the sake of it. 

 

Jones, Stewart and barkley were always unlikley to get near the first team. 

Lafferty as well.

There will be a small element of this but I'd have said they were signed to give more depth to The Rangers squad. 

 

It's more likely that they are trying to reduce their wage bill whilst waiting for season ticket money to come in.

Apart from being culpable for our winning goal on Sunday, that is.

The away game when he was at County was great fun - they constantly fired diagonal balls for him to run on to, hardly any of which he reached. Eventually got subbed off much to the amusement of the away end ! 
 

Also it appears someone has been busy …

My point is not whether these players would improve the squad, it’s whether or not they would it improve it enough to justify their cost. They signed both on a free so I’m not sure they’d be looking for fees but the wages they’ll be on are stupid. Do we think they are better than Meshino and Avdijaj, personally I don’t - and our youngsters are keeping them out if the team. So why break the bank for a couple of bench warmers over there?

 

350k for JJ.
