Contract Torn Up!

Newcastle skipper Joey Barton's ill-fated stint at Ibrox has ended now that his contract has been terminated.
The controversial midfielder has not featured for the Ibrox side since being banished from the club following a furious bust-up with manager Mark Warburton in the wake of September's humiliating 5-1 defeat to Celtic.
Rangers said in a statement: "Rangers and Joey Barton have agreed to terminate his contract with immediate effect. Neither Rangers nor Joey Barton will comment further."
The Light Blues were desperate to offload the £20,000-a-week summer signing after watching his Ibrox switch turn sour.
The 34-year-old launched into an explosive rant that saw him trade insults with both the manager and team-mate Andy Halliday.
