BARTON HASN'T A LEG TO STAND ON; THE WORLD OF EASY BETTING WITH DEREK MCGOVERN.

Byline: ADDITIONAL REPORTING BY JOHN SHAW

BARTON HASN'T A LEG TO STAND ON WHETHER you think his latest bust-up is something to apologise for depends on where you stand on Joey Barton. I would suggest his leg.

The Scouse motormouth was at it again last week, denigrating his Rangers team-mates after a crushing derby defeat.

And yesterday he was caught up in a betting investigation, allegedly backing Celtic to lose to Barcelona last week.

The Scottish FA has a strict no-betting policy. This is despite Ladbrokes sponsoring the Scottish Premiership, William Hill sponsoring the Scottish Cup, and 32Red sponsoring Rangers shirts.

Bookies 888sport are happy to offer 5-1 for him to play another Scottish Premiership game for Rangers this season. There won't be many takers - not even Barton.
