Barton's born again saint rep goes up in flames
Joey Barton should hopefully find himself in hot water soon after punching Morten Gamst Pedersen in the chest during last night's game.
Joey was only in the papers on Tuesday eulogising about Andy Carroll and pointing out faults in other players, which once again the moustached warrior has proved all by himself to be a smidge hypocritical.
Joey took aim at Rovers least hard player after a little brush of shoulders between two. Barton then spun round and decked Morten with a clenched fist.
The word coward doesn't even begin to cover the former jailbird and to makes matters worse he then tried to claim he only pushed Morten to both the Norwegian and referee Mike Jones which TV replays showed to be a porky pie.
Hopefully the FA will throw the book at Barton and show him that crimes, lies and punching our boy doesn't pay.
