Joey Barton bid farewell to the Burnley fans as he prepares for life at Rangers.

The midfielder is set to seal a two-year deal at Ibrox and is expected to sign for the club on Tuesday.

Barton enjoyed a successful season at Burnley winning the club’s player of the year and helping the Clarets to the Premier League.

However, Barton had turned down the opportunity to play in England’s top tier and says he’s relishing the challenge of playing in Scotland.

“Thanks to all the Burnley fans and everyone connected to the club. Amazing support this year that will live with me for a lifetime,” he tweeted.

“Toughest decision of my professional life to leave an amazing set of people and a phenomenal culture behind.

“Club is in a great place on and off the pitch with great custodians at the helm. Thanks again for the opportunity to represent your club.

“I was presented with an opportunity and challenge the competitive animal in me just could not turn down. Onwards and upwards now.”
