QPR captain Joey Barton has called the conduct of former manager Neil Warnock "embarrassing" and told the veteran boss to "look in the mirror".
Warnock, who signed Barton from Newcastle in August and immediately made him his skipper, lost his job with Rangers earlier this month. The 63-year-old expressed his disappointment at the decision on Thursday, telling the BBC that he thought owner Tony Fernandes had been "slowly poisoned" against him.
Warnock added that he thought some of the damage had been done via Twitter, saying: "It would have been difficult to resist because people get on the phone and tweet and it's almost like slowly poisoning somebody from outside the club and, no doubt, from within the club as well."
