Rangers sent Joey Barton home from training, hence these jokes

As news breaks that Rangers sent Joey Barton home following a training ground bust-up, here are the best jokes.

The former Man City, Newcastle and QPR midfielder is no stranger to controversy, with a rap sheet a mile long.

Now 34, he’s often presented himself as a reformed character, regularly opining on politics and philosophy.

But it seems he still can’t control his anger, apparently most recently brought on by his side’s 5-1 defeat to Celtic.
