Rangers have announced the signing of 33-year-old midfielder Joey Barton on a two-year deal as they prepare for life in the Ladbrokes Premiership.
The former Newcastle, QPR and Manchester City man, who has been capped by England, makes the move to Ibrox from Burnley and will officially join the club on July 1.
Assistant manager David Weir told the Rangers website: "I think it is a massive signing, I really do. I think for us to have the opportunity to sign a player of that calibre was probably outwith what we expected.
"He’s a fantastic talent and has all the attributes that we need within our team to add to what we have already got. He ticks all the boxes in regards to both personality and ability."
Barton added: "I am fully aware of the situation the club has been in during the last few years, but to be part of a group that is going to put this football club back where it belongs was an opportunity that if I didn’t take it, I would regret for the rest of my life.”
