Barker started his career in the Manchester City academy but he went on to make just one appearance for the first team while heading out on loans to Rotherham, NAC Breda, Hibernian, and Preston.

He joined Rangers in 2019, making 16 appearances. Barker spent the 2020/21 campaign in League One with Oxford United and played against Posh in a 0-0 draw at the Kassam Stadium in March.
