When Joey Barton is in your team, every week is shoot week. Just after saying that the Celtic captain wasn't in his league, Scott Brown thought he'd take a jibe back, saying that both the players had something in common as Barton was a Celtic fan.

Unfortunately for Brown, that proved to be a bad move. Barton hit back in style this evening, with an easy retort:

POW! It seems obvious now, but it's probably true that most of the Joey Barton fears can be best summed up as: yes, he may be a rocket, but he's our rocket. The fact that he has other edges over Scott Brown besides his wit, E.g. being able to trap and pass a football, will also be a nice wee bonus for the season ahead.
