Joey Barton: Rangers midfielder charged with breaking gambling rules

Rangers midfielder Joey Barton has been charged with breaking rules relating to gambling on football matches.

The 34-year-old is accused by the Scottish Football Association of placing 44 bets between 1 July and 15 September this year.

Barton is due to return from a three-week club ban on Monday following an internal dispute.

The player has until 12 October to respond to the charge, with a hearing date set for 27 October.

SFA disciplinary rule 33 prohibits players, coaches, club officials and referees in Scotland from betting on football anywhere in the world.

I can't see what the problem is myself. OK, I might be biased as I'm quite partial to the odd flutter but as far as I know he was betting on other matches that he was not involved in.

Now if he bet on his own team to lose 3 nil and just so happened to score 3 own goals then a ban for life.

All footballers bet and bet very big. It will never stop.

Only know what I've read Andrew and I no longer follow football.
In horse racing from trainers to stable staff etc. bet, so I don't understand why this is making news - unless it is on his own matches. ? No idea

I would add that people in some professions are almost prohibited from gambling - banking for example.

I notice they haven't broken the trades description act by calling him a footballer.
