Thank You Joey!

24 May 2016

Burnley Football Club would like to thank Joey Barton for his efforts and contributions during a historic Championship-winning season.

The midfielder, who has now completed a move to Rangers, made 40 appearances in all competitions and scored three goals for the Clarets.

And after deciding to end his one year spell at Turf Moor, he took to social media to explain a difficult decision.

He tweeted: "Thanks to all the Burnley fans and everyone connected to the club. Amazing support this year that will live with me for a lifetime.

"Toughest decision of my professional life to leave an amazing set of people and a phenomenal culture behind.

"Club is in a great place on and off the pitch with great custodians at the helm. Thanks again for the opportunity to represent your club. UTC, always."

He was named as the club's Player of the Year by supporters at our annual end of season awards and we would like to take the opportunity to wish him well in Scotland.
