It's a shambles should have already been dealt with will be 4 weeks without game time for a guy already not up to speed and struggling for match fitness deal with it one way or the other and move on this helps no one another indication to me that the boss has no clue.

That is the way disciplinary actions work. They now have time to reflect on what happened, at which time, a date for a new meeting will take place. I don't understand why you think MW has no clue, as correct procedures have to be in place.

But who does a 3 week suspension help? Would Walter Smith have done it no it would have been dealt with there and then this stuff happens at all levels of football deal with it move on were now paying our top earner to sit at home and fall further behind on fitness, have u saw the shambles were in that's why I think he has no clue some of his decisions are baffling, guess not to you tho?

Can someone explain the benefit to anyone a 3 week suspension serves? Absolutely pointless.

Lads, Clearly we do not know the full picture. We will not get to know the full picture in the near future either, no doubt Barton will come out at a later date.
I think the 3 week period giving time to think about what happened is just a guise until Rangers assess their position.
I think you could see that the style and flair was back from the players on Sat and I think that was a kickback from having no Barton. Yes we failed to score but we created and defended well at times. Let this one just play out, back the team and in my opinion no Barton will mean a full time return to free flowing football. Nothing against the guy but he did slow down everything we done.

As far as I'm concerned this is shambolic! Barton shouldn't have been suspended at all! Smacks of Barton be in made a scapegoat for the teams shortfallings! Terrible management.

Barton had to be suspended. If I shouted and swore at my manager or boss then I would be sent home from work until a disciplinary was arranged. He then gave an unsactioned radio interview where he publicly stated that he didn't agree with the way the Club had dealt with the situation. And this was before the club had had time to deal with his misdemenour internally. Just because he has a few million Twitter and Facebook followers doesn't give him the right to act as he sees fit. He is not bigger than the Club, they pay his wages, he is an employee and needs to act as such. As far as I can see from what has been reported he looks guilty of gross misconduct, which under normal circumstances would be a sackable offence.

No man is bigger than the club and this is exactly the point MW and Rangers are trying to make.

this has nothing to do with the club barton caused the problem the club can only respond to the situation that barton has caused its not a big enough oence to rip up his contract but hopeully owing to the length o the ban someone may come in or him and he can released by mutual agreement that's my take on it.

barton will never play for us again let him stew til january and get a fee for him no matter the baggage that comes with him someone will take him, whole episode has bn handled poorly the fact we have someone in the ranks leaking these things to the press is just as worryin as bartons behaviour.

3 weeks allows Rangers to follow proper Employment Law. Any further misdemeanors in that period will escalate this to a final warning and he will be sacked without a substantial settlement. MW andRangers are simply protecting themselves and this is the right thing to do. The matter has actually been handled well. We can ill afford substantial settlement cases.

Barry Ferguson and Allan McGregor got a 2 week suspension when Walter Smith was the manager so it's not unheard off. He obviously doesn't accept any wrong doing so we should firstly try and come to some sort of settlement to his contract and if not then just pay up the rest of his contract like we were going to pay him anyway and you've got rid off him. Obviously a bad influence to have about the place.

Barton done the same thing to Alan shearar in 2009, very similar circumstances, think he's trying to get some publicly to sell his book? I couldn't stand the guy before he came to ibrox, gave him a chance and he's blown it, good riddance all I am saying.
