Good signing for Rangers?

Barker did well for Hibernian in 2017-18 season, as he scored two goals and provided five assists in 27 Scottish Premiership appearances for Hibernian, according to Transfermarkt.com.

While the former England Under-20 international is still quite raw and is developing, a season-long loan deal would not be a bad move from Rangers.
