The ‘Gers’ and Barton went in november out of each other, after the Englishman in september on a training fight had created with team-mate Andy Halliday after losing Old Firm against archrival Celtic (5-1).

Then got Barton one match suspension from the Scottish bond since he joined in July 44 bets on voetbalduels had posted.


Barton returned this week back to his old club Burnley. The Englishman undertook for the rest of the season to the number sixteen of the Premier League.
