Steven Gerrard’s side have earned plaudits this season for their defence as they have conceded just three goals in the Scottish Premiership thus far.


But Rangers have been an imperious attacking force as well and have found the back of the net 45 times in their first 16 Scottish Premiership games.



Barker admits that it is a delight to play in the Rangers front four as the players have been given the freedom by the coaching staff to express themselves and play free-flowing attacking football.


The winger is enjoying playing in a team who go out and look to dominate and attack teams by keeping possession and is happy that they do not change the way they play their football even when coming up against quality sides in European football.



Barker said on Rangers TV: “I think you can see that, especially across the three playing behind the striker.


“It is constantly free-flowing and there is nothing better than having freedom when you are playing and actually dribbling with the ball, creating chances and that has definitely benefited all of the forwards.



“Everyone knows that our DNA is attacking teams, dominate the ball and we are doing that in every single game.


“We are not changing when we are going to Europe as well, which is extremely positive.


“We are dominating most games and I think that is just down to the staff giving us the instructions and the players going out doing that.


“The confidence is sky high and the boys are really loving life at the moment.”


Barker has been a bit-part player for Rangers this season and has scored two goals for the club.
