Joey Barton is on the brink of signing with Rangers, with The BBC reporting the midfielder held talks with the Scottish giants this weekend about a move.
Barton is a free agent in July after his one year contract with Burnley expires, and is claimed by The BBC to be tempted by a move.
The midfielder helped Burnley win promotion to the English Premier League last season, but with Rangers also earning a place back in the Scottish Premiership, he has a tough decision to make.
Barton has already publicly praised Rangers boss Mark Warburton recently, and his tweet sent during last months' Scottish Cup semi-final could have been a key turning point in his decision making, as he watched the Gers beat favourites Celtic.
Great battle so far in the Old Firm. Rangers have come so far under Warburton. A young side full of adventure. Great to watch. #OldFirm— Joseph Barton (@Joey7Barton) April 17, 2016
Barton praised the progress and direction of Rangers under Mark Warburton, and it is little surprise that he has subsequently taken an interest in a move to Ibrox.
The 33-year-old has experience and is used to dealing with pressure on and off the pitch, and while it could get fiery at times, he would likely prove to be a valuable acquisition for the Gers if they can seal his signature.
