Hughes relaxed over Barton

Published Add your comment

Mark Hughes insists he has no problem with Joey Barton tweeting, but has warned the QPR captain that he will have to step in if his actions compromise dressing room harmony at Loftus Road.

Barton used Twitter to label former manager Neil Warnock "embarrassing" after he claimed people from inside and outside of the club tweeting owner Tony Fernandes helped "poison" his reputation and led to his sacking two weeks ago.

Barton's tirade came less than 24 hours before Saturday's 3-1 win over Wigan, but Hughes did not speak to the midfielder and has no current plans to ask him to tone down his controversial tweets. Asked if he was concerned about Barton's actions, Hughes said: "No, not at this stage."
