Barton completes Rangers move

Joey Barton has signed for Rangers after rejecting a 12-month contract to remain at Burnley.

Barton was Burnley's player of the year last season as The Clarets' secured promotion back to the Premier League and he was offered a new one-year deal to remain at the club, but turned it sown in favour of a move to Scotland.

He underwent a medical at Rangers on Tuesday before putting pen to paper on a two-year deal with the Glasgow side. He will officially become a Rangers player when the transfer window opens on July 1.

"Thanks to all the Burnley fans and everyone connected to the club. Amazing support this year that will live with me for a lifetime," Barton said.

"Toughest decision of my professional life to leave an amazing set of people and a phenomenal culture behind.

"Club is in a great place on and off the pitch with great custodians at the helm. Thanks again for the opportunity to represent your club.

"I was presented with an opportunity and challenge the competitive animal in me just could not turn down. Onwards and upwards now."
