​Barton back training with Rangers after suspension lifted

Joey Barton will return to training with Rangers after the club lifted their suspension on the former Burnley midfielder.

The 34-year-old had been ordered to stay away from Ibrox following a training-ground bust up with team-mate Andy Halliday and boss Mark Warburton, just days after their 5-1 defeat by Celtic on September 10.

In a statement, the Scottish Premiership club said; "Joey Barton has been told he will return to full-time training following the conclusion of a disciplinary procedure.

"The Auchenhowie management team will inform the player of appropriate training arrangements to which he must adhere for as long as he remains a Rangers player.

"Neither the Club nor the player will comment further."
