Video: Joey Barton His Usual Quiet Self Back at Burnley

Joey Barton’s playing style hasn’t really changed after his controversial spell in Scotland with Rangers.

The English midfielder spent just three months at the Ibrox club, playing only eight games across two months before being suspended and then released.

He joined and immediately courted controversy for some of his public comments and failed to follow up his strong words with strong performances before being banished from the first team by Mark Warburton after a training ground incident.

But Barton doesn’t appear to have calmed down much since returning to Burnley – featuring as the pantomime villain during his side’s FA Cup clash with Lincoln today.

First it was a clash with Imps striker Matt Rhead at a throw-in:

Then he was involved in a little spat alongside Jon Flanagan with Lincoln’s Terry Hawkridge – where he was lucky to escape a red card for a stray hand to the face:

Barton has been impressive for Burnley since his return – but it’s clear he’ll still always be the centre of attention whenever he plays.
