Warnock not willing to start a war

Published Add your comment

Former QPR manager Neil Warnock is not planning on entering a war of words with former captain Joey Barton.

The veteran boss lost his job at Loftus Road two weeks ago and has since suggested forces inside and outside of the club had been "poisoning" owner Tony Fernandes against him via social networking site Twitter. That prompted Barton to launch an attack on the 63-year-old, with him tweeting that Warnock was an "embarrassment".

But writing in the Independent on Saturday morning, Warnock insisted he does not want to trade blows with the player who he signed from Newcastle in August, saying: "I'm told Joey Barton had a few things to say about me on Twitter last night. Obviously, I'm disappointed with the comments, but I don't feel there`s any need to respond."
