Joey Barton loves a scrap.
The midfield general has failed to keep out of trouble since breaking through at Newcastle and has now been banned at Rangers following his latest bust up.
There is, however, one place where Barton kept his nose clean and performed brilliantly…
Manager Sean Dyche has now hinted the former Queens Park Rangers star could make a sensational return to Turf Moor.

Sean Dyche won't be drawn on whether he'd re-sign him, though… https://t.co/rKTkdW0zMh

Barton, who has previously spent time in jail for assault, could view a return to Burnley as the perfect escape from his Scottish nightmare.
We reckon going back could be a brilliant move for him and it could help keep The Clarets in the Premier League!
Whatever happens we hope to see Barton back playing football again soon.
