The journalist reports that the 22-year-old is now likely to stay at Gers for the remainder of the season and some fans think he might have an unlikely shot at the first-team.
Understand that Jamie Barjonas’ proposed move to Orange County won’t be happening now.
Midfielder is likely to stay at Rangers until the end of the season.

His long-term future at the club is still in doubt though, as he has not made an appearance this term and his current contract expires in the summer.
The move to a United Soccer League Championship side perhaps shows that he’s not cut out for Gers.
Some supporters have expressed that view in response to the news but the fanbase is a little split on the midfielder.
The reasons for the move collapsing have not been disclosed but it is possible Steven Gerrard wanted to keep him around in light of recent events.
Bongani Zungu broke Covid-19 protocol last week and is now likely to have played his last game for the club.
We are in need of a back-up midfielder, therefore, and that is a role Barjonas can fill.
Rangers have a number of strong options in the middle of the pitch – Scott Arfield returned to action against Royal Antwerp on Thursday.
That means Barjonas may still struggle to get any minutes on the pitch but he may have a glimmer of a chance.
Here is how fans have been reacting to the transfer update.
That's a bonus. Take up the zungo role.

Talented player. Needs a run of games somewhere worthwhile. Hopefully Zungu’s fail can be his chance to come in for the odd game.

Breakthrough moment 😅😅

Barjonas has to be sold now. He has bounced about the first time and barely made a scratch for years now. [email protected] him to kickstart his career elsewhere!

Was thinking about this the other day. Makes sense, hopefully he can get some minutes.

I would assume following Zungu’s stupidity this might be the opportunity that Barjonas needed to break into the team. Hope he takes it because I was a big fan when he made his breakthrough.

Contract runs out end of May, he will be about 6th/7th choice. 22 and not had a really successful loan spell, he needs to move on for his career imo.

I wonder if Barjonas can thank Zungu for this decision. https://t.co/DuQlwXohfX
