Brilliant Broony – Celtic captain chased Barton back down the road

This Barton meltdown is almost as hilarious as theRangers one…

Joey Barton remember him? The big mouthed Englishman who rolled up in Glasgow back in 2016 saying he was ready to take over. Yes that Joey Barton, the one who was run out of town as quickly as he arrived.

Joey was heralded as a big signing and a statement of intent by Mark Warburton as he got ready for theRangers’ first ever season in top flight football. Brendan Rodgers had just took over at Celtic Park and Joey was out to show not just Brendan but Celtic captain Scott Brown what he was all about. Joey was here to take over. “I’ll be the best player in Scotland” he boasted.

Predictably theRangers supporters and the SMSM lapped it all up. Some even had Joey down as player of the year before a ball was kicked. Even more remarkably some even had theRangers down for Champions in their first ever season in the top flight of Scottish football.

Of course it didn’t work out that way. Joey was shown the door in mid-September, but not before he was taught a footballing lesson by Broony on that famous 5-1 victory in September 2016.

Broony out witted him and bullied him during the 5-1 thumping. It all turned out to be too much for Joey and it was his last game for theRangers. His bottle went and so did he. He had his contract terminated soon after and headed back down south with his tail well and truly between his legs.

At the moment Joey is having something of a meltdown on social media, offending everyone and anyone and just like theRangers supporters going on about the penalty that never was (IT WAS OFFSIDE) it makes for interesting entertainment.

One tweet from yesterday was highly amusing, when he took a pop at Gary Neville for being a coward. In Joey’s own words (well almost) he said the former Manchester United player and Sky Pundit was messing his pants regarding an incident between him and Patrick Viera during a game many years ago. This after Neville’s balances and reasonable intervention of women’s football, which Barton seems to have taken great offence to.

That would be the same Joey Barton who ran from Scotland after being bullied by Scott Brown. Yes, very ironic indeed. Big tough guy in England but found the Glasgow Derby way too hot to handle, thanks to Broony. Here’s what happened…

Just an Ordinary Bhoy
