Barton, who move to Ibrox over the summer, is accused of placing the bets between 1 July and 15 September in contravention to Disciplinary Rule 31.

He has until October 12 to respond and his hearing will take place on October 27.

It comes after the Glasgow club suspended Barton for three weeks for a training ground bust up with a teammate.

Barton was initially under investigation from the SFA and Gambling Commission after allegedly betting on Celtic to suffer a heavy defeat to Barcelona in the Champions League group game at Camp Nou last month.

It is alleged the wager - for Celtic to lose by at least three goals - was placed on Barton's personal account with bookmaker Betfair.
