Hibs winger Brandon Barker out until April

Hibs winger Brandon Barker is facing up to 3 months on the sidelines.

The on-loan Manchester City youngster had to be taken off injured in the Hibees weekend win over Rangers at Ibrox after only 7 minutes, and it turns out he has torn his hamstring.

Barker, 21, has been a regular starter for the Hibees, putting in some excellent performances.

He has played 25 games and scored 1 goal, breaking his duck only the other week against Motherwell at Easter Road.

Barker joins an ever-growing injury list, with Steven Whittaker, David Gray and Ross Laidlaw on the sidelines. Slivka, McGregor, and Hanlon also missed Saturday's clash at Ibrox.
