Joey Barton is set to return to full training after Rangers confirmed the disciplinary proceedings against him had been concluded.

The player had been suspended since an altercation with Andy Halliday and Mark Warburton following the 5-1 Old Firm defeat in January and was widely expected to leave the club in the near future.

A statement posted on the club’s website said: “Joey Barton has been told he will return to full-time training following the conclusion of a disciplinary procedure.

The Auchenhowie management team will inform the player of appropriate training arrangements to which he must adhere for as long as he remains a Rangers player. Neither the Club nor the player will comment further.”

Barton is expected to return to training on Thursday where he will train with the development squad to build his fitness ahead of a move in January.
