Joey Barton released by Burnley

Midfielder Joey Barton has been released by Burnley, one month after being banned from football.

The 34 year old was suspended for 18 months after admitting a Football Association charge in relation to betting.

He joined the Clarets for a second spell in January after leaving Scottish Premiership side Rangers.

Boss Sean Dyche said: "Joey leaves us for the obvious reasons after he has again been a big part of what we have achieved this season."
