Joey Barton: Midfielder ill-fated spell over

Joey Barton’s disastrous spell at Rangers has ended after the midfielder’s contract was terminated with immediate effect, the club has confirmed.

The controversial 34-year-old has not featured for the Ibrox side since being banished from the club following a furious bust-up with manager Mark Warburton in the wake of September’s humiliating 5-1 defeat to Celtic.

Rangers said in a statement: “Rangers and Joey Barton have agreed to terminate his contract with immediate effect. Neither Rangers nor Joey Barton will comment further.”

Championship outfit Leeds had been linked with a move for the one-cap England international, but a deal is understood to be unlikely.
