Rangers Close In on Connor Barron After Garcia Update

Rangers are reportedly set to sign midfielder Connor Barron after their pursuit of Damian Garcia hit a roadblock.

According to the Daily Record, the 21-year-old Scot is expected to undergo a medical at Ibrox following news that Garcia is close to extending his contract at Penarol.

Barron would be Rangers’ fourth summer signing, joining Jefte, Oscar Cortes (made permanent), and Clinton Nsiala. The swift move for Barron suggests he was a backup option to Garcia, and the club wasted no time securing him once the Uruguayan’s situation changed.

Barron, a promising young Scottish midfielder, could be a valuable addition to the squad, offering depth and potential for development. This also shows how efficiently Nils Koppen has worked behind the scenes, showing a proactive approach to securing the desired targets.
