RANGERS FOOTBALL CLUB is today delighted to confirm the signing of Joey Barton on a two year deal.

The 33 year-old midfielder will join the club on 1 July having won the English Championship with Burnley, and been named in the league’s team of the year.

He has vast experience having played for a number of top clubs, including Premier League spells with Manchester City, Newcastle United and Queens’ Park Rangers. Barton has also had a spell in France’s top league with Marseille and has been capped by the England national side.

Known largely as a holding midfielder, Barton has still been able to contribute at the other end, notching 36 career goals over 409 senior matches.

In his trophy cabinet, he has two Championship winners’ medals from Newcastle and Burnley, a play-off winners’ medal from QPR, his Championship ‘Team of the Year’ gong and Burnley’s Player of the Year award from last season.

One of the most recognisable figures in British football, Barton’s signing is a real coup for Rangers and everyone at the club extends a warm welcome to him.
