Barton to join Rangers
The speculation has mounted almost hourly today as to whether Joey Barton would be staying or going, and the news looks to have been confirmed this evening with a tweet from his Burnley team mate Andre Gray.
Just a few minutes ago, Gray tweeted: “Sad to see big bro @joey7Barton go! Learnt a lot from him!! God luck bro.”

This came just hours after Burnley had confirmed he’d been offered a new deal to remain at Turf Moor but news reports suggest the player has now given Rangers a verbal assurance that he will be signing for them on what is expected to be a two year deal.
There has been no news from either club but it would seem very likely that Joey Barton has played his last game for Burnley.Share this page :
