Newcastle midfielder Joey Barton has been suspended from the club until further notice.

The controversial 26-year-old, who was sent off for a reckless challenge on Liverpool's Xabi Alonso on Sunday which cost him a three-match ban and ended his season, has been told to stay away as Alan Shearer attempts to save the club from relegation.

A club statement said: "Newcastle United can confirm that Joey Barton has been suspended from the club until further notice. The club will be making no further comment on the matter at this time."

A report on Tuesday suggested the former Manchester City player was involved in a furious dressing room bust-up with Shearer after the game at Anfield.
