RANGERS AND JOEY BARTON SET TO HOLD TALKS
Rangers midfielder Joey Barton is set to hold talks with the club on his future at Ibrox, according to reports. The English player was suspended after a training ground burst up in September. He might not appear for the Rangers team again, the BBC claims.
The 34-year old player joined the Scottish premiership club this summer after leaving Burnley. Barton is facing charges from the Scottish FA as he reportedly broke betting rules as a player. The club suspended him following a row with the club coach Mark Warburton and teammate Andy Halliday after he blamed the team for their 5-1 loss to Celtic last month.
Barton has always been making headlines for a lot of reasons, but it was assumed that he would try to stay off trouble in his new club. He spent just a year at Burnley after exiting Queen Park Rangers. He rejected a £35,000 weekly wage offer to move to Rangers few months back on a two-year deal. The player has a reputation for quick temper even before his move to Burnley, but his former coach Sean Dyche made a few revelations.
“I was obviously quite in depth about what’s gone on recently at Rangers and I said I could only judge by what I found. That was absolutely top class. The way he went about it, the way he was with the group, with the staff – very demanding still and, if he asks a question, he needs an answer,” Dyche told BBC Radio 5.
The Burney manager is still grateful for the contributions of the player as they won the English Championship and a promotion to the Premier League.
“He stayed absolutely steadfast to the cause, for the club, and that helped players around him I think and brought other players to life at times. Sometimes it just fits. He fitted with us, we fitted with him,” Dyche explained.Uncategorized
