Joey Barton insists he has unfinished business with Rangers after claiming he cannot wait to rejoin Mark Warburton's squad.

The controversial midfielder is currently serving a three-week club suspension following a blazing row with boss Warburton and team-mate Andy Halliday in the wake of this month's humiliating 5-1 defeat to rivals Celtic.

It appeared that would spell the end of his time in Glasgow after just eight games for the Light Blues.

But now he has told his 3.25million Twitter followers he is determined to return to Ibrox and make his mark.

Responding to questions from fans, the Englishman said over a series of posts: ""People far too quick to write (the team) off. Celtic game was 1st competitive loss since 28th Dec 2015. 30+ games.

"(I'm) not going anywhere, happy to be judged after the season. Played 8 games. Had to use some for fitness as (we) had no pre season! Can't wait to get back and show what (I) am about."
