Of Course Joey Barton Quoted Bob Dylan To All But Confirm His Move To A New Club

Having played an influential role in Burnley's promotion to the the Premier League, Joey Barton has all but confirmed he is now set to depart Turf Moor for pastures anew. Obviously, he's used a Bob Dylan quote to get his message across.

Via the ingenious lyrics of Dylan's 1965 hit 'Like A Rolling Stone' (incidentally once voted the greatest song of all time by Rolling Stone magazine) and a less than cryptic hashtag, Barton has essentially confirmed he will join Rangers in the Scottish Premier League next season.

Sadly, it didn't even take a Google search to deduce that the hashtag #WATP stands for Rangers' catchphrase 'We Are The People', and so it would appear as though the 33-year-old will line out at Ibrox next season.


Barton, whose autobiography is incredibly titled 'No Nonsense', yesterday took to Twitter to defend the Rangers fans who clashed with their Hibs adversaries on the pitch at Hampden Park.



Rangers have themselves released a beyond-farcical statement defending their fans and admonishing both Scottish football and Hibernian for their respective lack of remorse following yesterday's altercations.

Perhaps they're looking to recruit Barton as a PR man.

When asked yesterday if Barton's wage would shatter the club policy, Rangers chairman Dave King yesterday told the Scottish Sun:


It wouldn’t, no. We have an evolving wage policy that must adjust as the club progresses.
