Rangers winger Brandon Barker has picked up another injury.
Rangers assistant boss Gary McAllister has told the Daily Record that winger Brandon Barker ‘has an issue with his toe’ which means he could miss tonight’s game with Livingston.
The Gers are in Scottish League Cup action tonight, travelling to take on Livingston in the quarter-finals of the competition.
Having lost in the semi-finals last season, Rangers will be looking for more success this term, and Steven Gerrard will no doubt want to name a strong line-up.
However, he has a number of injury woes to deal with, particularly out wide, with three wingers potentially missing tonight’s game.
Jordan Jones is still out after suffering a knee injury in getting sent off against Celtic, whilst new signing Ryan Kent is out too after a hamstring injury sustained against Livingston last week.
Now, there may be an issue with winger Barker too, as McAllister claims he has an issue with his toe, which may just keep him out of action tonight.
“Brandon Barker has an issue with his toe, it’s great to see Kent and Jones starting to move again. They won’t be rushed but they are improving,” said McAllister.
That will be a blow for Barker, who has a real chance to establish himself with Jones and Kent out, but this is a case of history repeating itself for the ex-Manchester City man.
Barker’s biggest issue throughout his career has been injury woes, and having already been out once at Rangers, picking up a second injury in quick succession will be a massive disappointment.
