QPR manager Mark Hughes has promised to deal with Joey Barton once the Football Association has announced its punishment for last week's behaviour against Manchester City.
The Hoops captain's future is in doubt after he elbowed Carlos Tevez, kicked Sergio Aguero and appeared to headbutt Vincent Kompany during Rangers' 3-2 defeat at the Etihad Stadium on the final day of the season.
"We are waiting to hear on Joey Barton's punishment," the Rs boss told the Daily Mail. "He is facing a long ban and we have to take stock of the situation."
