Barton and Ranger denied US entry

Joey Barton and Nile Ranger will both miss Newcastle's pre-season trip to the United States after being refused entry visas.
The pair will instead travel to Holland with Peter Beardsley's reserve team squad and re-join their senior colleagues on their return to Tyneside.
Ranger's absence from the tour, which includes three friendlies, was confirmed on Wednesday afternoon following an announcement earlier in the day that Barton's visa application had been rejected.
