Joey Barton has taken to Twitter (shock!) to hit out at a section of Queens Park Rangers supporters who booed their team during the goalless draw with Crystal Palace at Loftus Road yesterday.

The controversial midfielder wrote that fans do have a right to vent their frustration, but that it "helps nobody", and reminded the supporters that the club are now in a far better predicament that two seasons ago, when they were relegated to the Championship.


QPR struggled against mangerless Palace in the 0-0 draw on Sunday. Rangers may have felt Palace would be there for the taking after Neil Warnock was relieved of his duties following just one win in 12 matches, but there were no signs of despondency from the Eagles, who seemed eager to impress their new boss from the outset.

After the match, Barton wrote...



QPR are next in action against Swansea City, at Loftus Road, on New Year's Day.
