Just read that he is on verge of signing for The Rangers ! Pity he wasnt there this year and big Marve would have him in his back pocket. Having read that they are signing a Liverpool lad on 10,000 per week then hopefully it is only a matter of time before they disappearfor ever next time

If Barton is going to them then that honestly is a fantastic signing! Burnley player of the year this season and they won the English Championship. Might be a bit older now but he is a class act who seems to have got over his temper issues. His wages though, must be way beyond The Rangers means? Seems they never learn.

No danger, has connections with Frank McParland at Rangers. Can't believe they've managed to pull this off. Hopefully it just means they have learned zip and will just **** themselves in the long run again. Here's hoping!

You don't surely believe they have no money. Celtic fans on Twitter have been saying that for 4 years, they had 34k season ticket holders this season and will either match or surpass that number next season. They have money to spend. Just hope they don't get Cummings as well. Don't think I could handle that.

If they pay enough then i,m not so sure ? Keatings has as much in his locker, the lad from Dunfermline looks good and remember it is the Championship after all. Will take a million to take him away due to English interest so perhaps cash in and move on

Why would he go there when Burnley just promoted to EPL.

The only reason I can think of is that they think they need better to survive in the premier league.

Barton is a good player so it says more about the increasing demands of that division than anything else.

Barton must be on about 30-40 K a week...Would need to take a massive drop in wages to sign for the bigots.

25k a week for 2/3years. He will be the top earner in Scotland along with Scott Brown. Burnley offering a 1 year deal

Perfect fit really. Rangers = a nasty, disrespectful, fake club who think people will forget they are rotten to the core despite trying to reinvent themselves. Barton = a nasty, disrespectful, fake little scrote who thinks people will forget he is rotten.....

Hope they are happy together. Decent player unfortunately!

Of course I'm guessing, but using logic of what English championship players get paid. If Rangers are paying a kid from Liverpool 10k a week Barton will be getting top dollar at Rangers

No chance. Burnleys wage bill is lower than Celtics. He was rumoured to be on 70k a week at QPR so had made his money.

Come up here for 10-15k a week, chance of a medal or 2, potential European football. Can see why its lucrative for footballers with one eye on retirement.

Huns sold 38,000 season tickets last season. They're hoping for 45k this season even with a 20% price increase. Like Celtic they'll have a few quid to spend.

He's willing to take a wage cut as large as 50% for someone else rather than the 1 year contract that Burnley are offering. As for the 10k a week for the youngster from Liverpool that will be true considering Templeton is on 12k a week at them and his contract is just about to expire. Also read on the Sunday Post that a Rangers deal for Cummings is close.

Bartons a great signing. With him being out of contract I wouldn't be surprised if a Premier club down south came in for him.

Apparently Rangers have denied paying the Liverpool kid 10 grand a week but the guys supposed to be a great talent so I do t think he'll be cheap.

He'd be daft to miss out on a last crack at the EPL, but there was no doubting his ability in the Championship this season. He's got rid of his petulant side and just strolls through games, while still enjoying his status as pantomime villain.

My thoughts as well. Don't believe Burnley would want to lose him and would be surprised if the Huns could come close to matching Burnley in terms of salary. He still has a few years left in him and can't see him picking the SPL over premiership at this stage in his career. Great signing if they pull it off though.

Would appear that Barton wants a longer contract rather than the same or more money than he's on at Burnley, Burnley also dont want to offer him a longer contract than the 1 year they are offering.

Burnley accounts 2015 show a t/o of 78 million and staff costs of 29 million when they were in the EPl.

I think they could outbid Sevco if they wanted to.

Their accounts highlight the crazy financing of that league.

Match day income for the season 6 million, TV rights 66 million !

The Huns already see themselves playing in Europe next season. I've not spoken to one the rangers fan who doesn't think this. He probably sees it as a way to play in Europe for the last few years of his career.

Let's make sure Mr Barton is disappointed for next season at least 👍🏻

Not been sent off since Feb 2013 which suggests he has matured. Also played 90 minutes 30 times out of a possible 36 which shows he has the fitness to keep playing for a while.

The highest level? He's been at low level prem teams most of his career and has one cap.

Think folk are getting a bit over excited here. He'll be 34 in September and they need to keep him for at least 2 years. Sauzee was a far bigger signing as was the Dutch guys they signed under Big Dick.

Well from the point of view of a Rangers fan he undoubtedly strengthens the squad with experience and quality so I as a Rangers fan would be happy to see that type of experience and quality in the team but with reservations. As you all no doubt know he has a history of explosive moments but if the manger wants him then I expect he thinks he can handle him so I will trust his judgment on this one.

There is also a story coming to light that Mark Warburton has been in New York with a view to signing the Croatian midfielder Niko kranjcar who is currently playing with New York Cosmos and if that were also to come to pass Rangers are building a highly effective midfield.

Judging from what I have heard Barton is on nothing like 30K a week at Burnley and in fact if you do a bit of searching you can find many links talking about the strict wage structure at Burnley which just a few years ago was reported to be capped at 15K a week.

And in addition Barton himself has said on more than one occasion that money isn't his priority at this stage in his career. If he signs for Rangers he will undoubtedly be one of the highest earners there but his decision will be more based around promises of a crack at Euro football in the not too distant future and his relationship with Frank McParland who I think also got him to sign for Burnley.
