BRANDON BARKER and Jordan Jones, two wingers brought to Rangers by Steven Gerrard, are heading for the Ibrox exit.

Both players look likely to be offloaded before Friday’s midnight deadline which could allow the club to bring in one new face.

The wide men are considered surplus to requirements after failing to spark since arriving in the summer and will now be jettisoned, according to a report in the Daily Record.

Gerrard would like to strengthen his squad after seeing his team lose ground in the title race following their 2-1 loss against Hearts at Tynecastle on Sunday. The defeat left eight-in-a-row champions Celtic five points clear although the Govan outfit have a game in hand.

Clubs south of the border have been alerted to the availability od Barker and Jones as Gerrard trims the numbers at the club.

He has already moved on Eros Grezda, Andy King and Jamie Murphy since the turn of the year.

Now Barker, who was brought in from Manchester City and is believed to be earning in excess of £10,000-per-week, and former Kilmarnock flanker Jones could join the exodus after the manager identified at least one priority target.

However, any business will depend upon freeing up money from the club’s current wage bill.
