QPR captain Joey Barton unleashed an online tirade against the Football Association on Thursday, labelling them an "Orwellian organisation" in need of a "drastic shake-up".

The 29-year-old midfielder tweeted that he had received a warning letter from the FA for predicting the outcome of the weekend's matches involving Manchester United and Manchester City.

Barton claims he was warned the predictions could be seen as "insider information" and that he has received around 30 letters from the governing body. Beginning a series of tweets, he said: "Just received my weekly warning letter from FA headquarters, this time regarding me tweeting about predicting the weekend's Manchester double."
