​Barton rejects Burnley deal for Rangers switch

Rangers have announced the signing of midfielder Joey Barton on a two-year deal.

The 33-year-old had been offered new terms at Burnley after being named their player of the year as the Turf Moor club won the Championship.

"When I first found out there was an opportunity to come here, that got the blood pumping," Barton told the Rangers website.

"I'm fully aware of the situation the club has been in for the last few years but to be part of a group that is going to put this club back where it belongs was an opportunity - that if I didn't take I would probably have regretted it for the rest of my life."
