Joey Barton has admitted he may not have joined Rangers if he had the benefit of hindsight following his three-week suspension.
“I needed another challenge, another experience, even though there have been days since then when I’ve thought: ‘Why? Why did I do that?’ But I’ve got to believe in Rangers even if it’s been much harder than I expected,” he said.
“Reflecting on it, would I have made the same decision? Probably not. I’ve even been honest with people about that.
“There is an honesty that I am operating which means some people think I’m critiquing them. But I know that in time it will turn out to be the right decision. As tough as it is, adversity brings out the best in you.”
