Joey Barton’s Rangers contract has been terminated with immediate effect, the Scottish Premiership club have confirmed.
Barton was reported to have been signed off by Rangers with stress earlier this week as negotiations continued over severance terms to end an unhappy spell in Glasgow.
The 34-year-old former Manchester City and Newcastle United midfielder – capped once by England – only returned to training with Rangers last week after a club suspension against him was lifted.
