Kenny Miller has told the Daily Mail that Rangers signing Joey Barton has been great to have around the club so far. 

The midfielder is one of eight new faces at the club this summer, with Mark Warburton building his squad ahead of the new campaign.

The capture of Barton has been warmly received, especially after the fine performances he put in for Burnley in the Championship last season.

He has recently started pre-season training with the Gers as they gear up for the new season, and Miller says so far he has been good to have as part of the group.

“So far he’s been good to have around the place,” he told the Daily Mail.

“We all know what Joey is like as a player on the pitch, but it’s all about getting to know him off the pitch as well and getting him integrated with the rest of the dressing room.”

It now remains to be seen what impact that Barton can have at Rangers next season.

Much is expected of him given how well he performed last season as Burnley returned to the Premier League at the first time of asking.

With the pressure on Mark Warburton’s side as they look to challenge Celtic for the title and they will need Barton, as well as several others at the top of their game to do so.
