Joey Barton has been handed a one-match suspension for breaking Scottish Football Association betting rules.

The former Rangers midfielder admitted breaching the SFA's zero-tolerance rules, which forbid players gambling on any match.

The 34-year-old - whose Rangers contract was terminated last week - placed 44 bets on games between July 1, when his Ibrox deal started, until September 15.

His suspension will be carried over if and when he signs for a new club in January.
