Neil Lennon signs ex-Rangers forward as former Celtic boss adds familiar face to Omonia Nicosia squad

Neil Lennon has added another familiar face to his Omonia Nicosia squad with the signing of former Rangers forward Brandon Barker.

The ex-Celtic boss has completed a move for the 25-year old who made just 16 appearances during a three-year spell at Ibrox, leaving in January to sign a short-term deal with Reading.

Barker, who played under Lennon at Hibs during a season-long loan from Manchester City in the 2017-18 Scottish Premiership campaign, has penned a two-year deal with the Cypriot side.

Barker, a former England youth international, also spent time on loan at Preston, Rotherham and NAC Breda during his Man City days.

He was also loaned out to Oxford United while at Rangers. He scored three goals for the Ibrox side but never became a first team regular.
