Joey Barton, who left Burnley over the summer to join Glasow Rangers, is now back with the Clarets and participating in training after having his contract terminated two months ago with the Scottish Premier League club.
Barton, who is no stranger to making enemies wherever he goes and making headlines for his antics both on and off the pitch, had a short stint with Rangers and was sent packing after a training ground altercation back in September. Burnley may be the only haven left for the 34-year-old to continue plying his trade at the highest level, as he was the Player of the Season for the Clarets during their title-winning campaign in the Championship last season. Sean Dyche refused to say that Barton's participation in training for Burnley means he will be joining the club, only to help the veteran work on his fitness while he remains without a job. Should Barton officially join the Clarets in the winter window, he will need to serve a one-match ban for breaking a gambling rule while playing under the Scottish Football association. This will be an entertaining situation to monitor in the coming weeks. Nov 24 - 7:25 AM
