Glasgow Rangers fans appear to believe that Joey Barton has already got one-up on Celtic midfielder Scott Brown through his comments since signing at Ibrox.

Barton and Brown have been having a war of words ever since the former Burnley man decided to join Mark Warburton’s side.

Rangers midfielder Barton kicked things off by stating that he was ‘out of Brown’s league’, but the Celtic captain fired back yesterday.

Brown said that he’d get on well with Barton, as the 33-year-old was a Celtic fan - referencing old messages on Twitter that Barton had posted.

However, never one to back down, Barton was quick to post his retort by putting up a picture of Brown in a Rangers’ shirt on social media.

Rangers fans believe that Barton has already got into the head of Brown, and they have been praising his comments.

Rangers’ and Celtic’s rivalry is set to be renewed next season, with Warburton’s side back in the top tier.

Rangers will be looking to stop Celtic winning their sixth successive Scottish Premiership title next term.
