Jamie Barjonas confirms he's set for Rangers exit

Jamie Barjonas has confirmed he will be leaving Rangers at the end of the month when his contract at Ibrox expires.

Barjonas, 22, has spent the last 14 years on the books at Ibrox, making him the longest-serving player at the Premiership champions.

In a heartfelt post on Instagram on Tuesday, the English midfielder confirmed he’ll be leaving Rangers as he also sent out a special message to fans.

“So, after 14 years my time at Rangers has come to an end,” said Barjonas.

“From soccer schools on Sundays to making my first-team debut, I’ve made so many amazing memories that will stay with me for life.

“To the unbelievable fans who make the club so special, I’d like to say thank you for the support.

“To everyone who played a part along the way, I will be forever grateful and I wish the club nothing but success in the future.”

All the best, Jamie

We really thought Barjonas would make it at Ibrox.

He’s been one of the hottest young properties the club has had for a while but for one reason or another, it simply hasn’t happened for him.

Barjonas leaves Ibrox having made nine appearances in all competitions for the club.

Steven Gerrard regularly named him on the bench this season but failed to hand the midfielder a single appearance.

In January, Barjonas was strongly linked with a move to the USA to join Orange County with the Daily Record reporting he was set to sign a one-year deal there before the move collapsed.

Instead, the Leeds-born midfielder saw his international transfer change to a loan stint at Ayr United in the Championship, where he made six appearances and earned just two starts.

As a 22-year-old, you have to be starting games in the Premiership if you want to make it at Ibrox and Barjonas simply wasn’t even doing that in the Championship.

It’s definitely the right time for Rangers and him to go their separate ways.

We wish Jamie all the best in his next move and hopefully he can get that USA transfer he wanted in the winter.

In other Rangers news, this 23-year-old also has no future in Govan.
