Joey Barton may have found himself in more trouble than he bargained for.

The Rangers midfielder who is currently on 3 weeks suspension following a heated argument with his colleague in training is under investigation over claims he bet on a big Barcelona win against Celtic. He allegedly bet on Celtic to lose by at least three goals against Barcelona in a Champions League match which took place a week ago.

Meanwhile the Scottish FA forbids players from placing bets on any football matches around the world.

 “No club, official, Team Official or other member of Team Staff, player, match official or other person under the jurisdiction of the Scottish FA shall bet in any way on a football match.” Disciplinary Rule 22 reads
