Fleetwood Town players come to blows in the dressing room and video footage shows Rangers midfielder Jason Holt trying to break up the fight.

It’s been a dramatic week for the English League One club, with Ex-Gers flop Joey Barton yesterday (Thursday) denying allegations he attacked Barnsley boss Daniel Stendel in the tunnel.

Just hours later, Fleetwood posted a clip for their new TV series, A Season On The Edge, on Twitter.

The trailer includes several X-rated team talks from Barton and the most explosive footage comes from inside the dressing room on match day as Fleetwood’s players scrap, with Ibrox loanee Holt trying to calm tensions.

Football Insider verdict:

Rangers fans who recall Barton’s short and ill-fated spell at Ibrox, which ended in acrimony and the termination of his contract after a bust-up with Andy Halliday, will not be surprised to see his own players scrapping in the dressing room. It makes for an unedifying sight, even though what goes on in the sanctuary of the changing room at plenty of clubs is likely to be just as bad, if not worse. Bears will just be relieved that Barton’s association with their own club was a short one. His spell in Scotland was catastrophic, following plenty of big talk and promises. As for Holt, who is out of contract at Ibrox at the end of the summer, League One is about his level. He has done pretty well at Fleetwood this season before returning to his parent club before his loan had expired due to a season-ending knee injury. Rangers will hope Fleetwood are eager to convert Holt’s loan into a permanent transfer to get him off their books.

In other Rangers transfer news, it can be REVEALED that the club are in talks to terminate the contract of a £20,000-a-week Ibrox player.
