Joey Barton has been told to stay away from Rangers
until Monday after an altercation with team-mate Andy Halliday, says Press Association Sport.
The training ground bust-up took place on Tuesday, with players told of Barton’s temporary ban on Thursday.
Midfielder Barton, 34, is expected to miss Saturday’s home Premiership match with Ross County.
He moved to Ibrox from Burnley in the summer and has made eight appearances.
Halliday, 24, was a mainstay of the Rangers midfield in the Championship last season but has been on the bench in the past two top-flight matches.
Barton signed a two-year contract in May, choosing a new challenge in Glasgow ahead of the offer of new terms at Turf Moor.
He was Burnley’s player of the year as they won the Championship title to return to the Premier League.
“I’m coming up here to be the best player in the country,” he announced on the day he signed for Mark Warburton’s Rangers.
At his Thursday media conference, Warburton said the media reaction to his side’s 5-1 loss at Celtic last weekend had been overly negative, but made no mention of Barton’s absence from training.
Rangers refused to comment on Barton’s situation later on Thursday.
