Reports are circulating that midfielder Joey Barton has shunned Burnley's offer of a new contract after verbally committing his future to Rangers.

While the move is yet to be made official, the 33-year-old is believed to be on the brink of moving to Ibrox on a two-year deal.

It has been suggested that the free agent, offered a one-year contract at Turf Moor, will be in Glasgow within the next 48 hours to complete a medical with the SPL newcomers before putting pen to paper.
