Barton deserves heavy sanction - Taylor

Published Add your comment

Gordon Taylor has strongly condemned Joey Barton, claiming the QPR captain fully deserves a lengthy ban for his antics during and after Sunday's defeat at Manchester City.

Barton's future at QPR is in doubt after he elbowed Carlos Tevez, kicked Sergio Aguero and appeared to headbutt Vincent Kompany during the game and then took to Twitter to launch an expletive-ridden attack on Match of the Day duo Alan Shearer and Gary Lineker afterwards.

The Rangers skipper has until midday on Thursday to decide whether to appeal two charges of violent conduct, and the Professional Footballers' Association chief executive said: "If you come out with stuff like that you are going to deserve to be heavily sanctioned."
