Barton turns cryptic ahead of Ibrox talks
Rangers star Joey Barton has posted a cryptic picture on social media ahead of discussions about his future with club bosses.
Barton will hold talks with Ibrox chiefs today as the first step in resolving the midfielder's future. The former Burnley ace has been serving an extended suspension from the club's training base following a furious row with boss Mark Warburton and team-mate Andy Halliday.
Yesterday Barton posted a screenshot on his Instagram of Danish singer MØ and her track Final Song - sparking concern from followers. He wrote alongside the picture "Great band…" with a thumbs up emoji. One Instagram user asked: "You staying or going big man?"
Today's meeting is likely to be the first stage of a disciplinary matter, rather than the final outcome concerning Barton's time with Rangers. The Gers were held 1-1 by St Johnstone in the Scottish Premiership last night while Celtic won 4-0 at Ross County.
