Newcastle midfielder Joey Barton believes a "high power" will judge him on his actions when he dies.

The 25-year-old is expected to appear in court next year charged with occasioning actual bodily harm on former Manchester City team-mate Ousmane Dabo, although he insists he did nothing wrong. He also stubbed out a cigar in the eye of a City youth team player at a Christmas party and assaulted a 15-year-old boy on a pre-season trip to Thailand with the Blues.

But Barton said: "With things that have happened you become more spiritual, and I think the main thing for me is I don´t think I´d ever be judged on this earth,"
