​Rangers Barton hit with SFA charge over gambling

Rangers midfielder Joey Barton has been charged with breaking rules relating to gambling on football matches.

The 34-year-old is accused by the Scottish Football Association of placing 44 bets between 1 July and 15 September this year.

Barton is due to return from a three-week club ban on Monday following an internal dispute.

The player has until 12 October to respond to the charge, with a hearing date set for 27 October.
