Barton banned for three weeks by Rangers

Press AssociationPress Association 5 days ago By Andy Newport

Controversial Rangers midfielder Joey Barton's career has been left hanging in the balance after club chiefs suspended him for three weeks.

The once-capped England international has been disciplined following last week's training ground row with boss Mark Warburton and team-mate Andy Halliday.

Although Rangers insist they are taking their time to assess the fall-out, it now appears Barton's time in Glasgow could be up after just eight appearances.

The 34-year-old was summoned to an early-morning meeting with Warburton and board members where he expected to iron out their differences.

Instead he was informed he should stay away from Ibrox and the Light Blues' Auchenhowie training base until October 10.
