Just as Blackburn deny any interest in taking Joey Barton to Ewood Park it seems like Alex McCleish, himself no stranger to bad-boys with Lee Bowyer in the promotion side, could be set to offer our miscreant a season-long return to the top flight.

It’s ironic that two of our biggest wastrels, Owen and Barton, could end up being the first two to escape from the Championship. The Barton deal no doubt hinges on whether we’re willing to subsidise him and Willy McKay for another year.
