Rangers flop shock switch to management will end in similar car crash fashion to his Ibrox stint


Former Rangers midfielder Joey Barton has surprisingly been confirmed as the next Fleetwood head coach – and it will end in disaster when Barton’s ego gets in the way.

The former midfielder will take the reins at Highbury when his 13-month ban for gambling comes to an end in June and it is will provide an entertaining car crash as it inevitably ends in disaster when Barton takes a leaf out of the current Ibrox managerial guidebook and falls out with half of his squad.

Fleetwood confirmed the appointment on their official Twitter account on Wednesday.

The former Man City and England ace talks a good game but as his spell at Rangers shows, he simply doesn’t have the mentality to take charge of a side and will revert to his confrontational best if and when things start going against them.

Barton’s lack of any coaching experience won’t do him any favours either as he start his managerial career in a difficult division that has seen plenty of experienced managers fall by the wayside.

It will be pretty funny though when one of Barton’s players take the hump with the manager – in a move that Joey Barton has used to his own benefit so many times before – and decide to spill the beans in the media.
