Ibrox side Glasgow Rangers are set to renew their rivalry with Celtic next season.
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.
