Ibrox flop Joey Barton has given the most bizarre reason why Frank Lampard, Steven Gerrard and himself will become great managers.

The Scottish football failure believes Gerrard can cut it in Glasgow because he’s a ‘slow plodding midfielder’ and apparently those types of footballers make the best managers.

“If you look at it, slow plodding midfielders tend to become good managers.

“Look at many great managers and they tend to be of a certain type.

“Pep Guardiola is the best coach but was a midfielder who had no pace and no skills. Mauricio Pochettino was of the similar profile.

“Zinedine Zidane may buck the trend but he was a midfielder! I am taking great refuge in the fact that midfielders tend to make really good coaches.”

Joey officially goes into management with Fleetwood Town after his football ban was fully served due to breaking strict gambling rules.

In what was a bizarre interview we also had the ‘slow’ midfielder talk about himself in the third person.

Scott Brown really ruined the guy.
