Rangers have extended Joey Barton's club suspension by a further week, the club have announced today.

The midfielder, 34, was due to return to Ibrox on Monday following his month-long exile following a dressing-room disagreement with teammate Andy Halliday in the aftermath of Rangers' 5-1 mauling at the hands of Celtic in September's Old Firm Derby.

However, a Rangers statement read: "Joey Barton has been informed that his suspension by the club has been extended by one week.

"This is part of a formal disciplinary procedure and Joey has been instructed not return to Ibrox or Auchenhowie until further notice."
