Barker joined Rangers from Linthouse in 1892 and made an immediate impact by scoring 3 goals in his first 5 appearances. He achieved a similar impact at international level, scoring a hat-trick in the first of his two Scotland caps against Wales in March 1893. He scored in his second, and what proved to be his last Scotland appearance again against Wales a year later in a 5-2 win.
He scored for Rangers in their 1894 Scottish Cup triumph against Celtic but, despite continued success, left the club in 1896. He died in Govan, Glasgow in 1941 at the age of 72.
