Liverpool icon Barnes declared bankrupt

Sacked Tranmere Rovers boss John Barnes, the former Liverpool and England winger, has been declared bankrupt by a Liverpool insolvency court.

The Guardian says Barnes, 45, gave his occupation as a 'provider of media services, lately a footballer'. He was declared insolvent and will be discharged on 14 October, 2010.

The hearing took place five days after Barnes' dismissal from Prenton Park, where his side lost eight of the 11 games under his control. Barnes had quit as manager of Jamaica in May to take over at the League One club, who are local to him.
