Rangers have finally pulled the plug on Joey Barton’s ill-fated stint at Ibrox, announcing that his contract has been terminated.

Rangers said in a statement: “Rangers and Joey Barton have agreed to terminate his contract with immediate effect. Neither Rangers nor Joey Barton will comment further.”
