Former Rangers winger Vladimir Weiss has taken to Twitter in order to send a message to supporters about new signing Joey Barton.

The Gers had already sealed three signings, with Accrington duo Matt Crooks and Josh Windass as well as Liverpool teenager Jordan Rossiter all putting pen-to-paper at Ibrox - and now, former England international Barton has also made the move to Glasgow.

Barton, 33, has just come off a superb season with Burnley, where he played a key role for Sean Dyche as the Clarets won promotion to the Premier League.

Yet, despite having the chance to return to the Premier League, Barton has decided to leave Turf Moor, and signed on the dotted line for Rangers on Tuesday afternoon.
