Joey Barton was left without a squad number as QPR named their list for the new season.

The midfielder's old number 17 shirt was given to summer signing Ryan Nelsen who joined from Tottenham.

Barton must serve a 12-game ban to start the season after his dismissal in the final match of last season against his former club Manchester City, and he has been stripped of the club captaincy.
