London:

Combative QPR captain Joey Barton took to Twitter on Friday to lambast former manager Neil Warnock as "embarrassing".

Warnock, who was sacked earlier this month as his team plummeted down the Premier League, had on Thursday claimed that the club's owners had been influenced by outisde forces tweeting and texting.

The 63-year-old said that owner Tony Fernandes had been "slowly poisoned" against him.

Warnock did not name Barton, but the midfielder, a prolific 'Tweeter' wrote on Friday: "Neil Warnock saying I talk too much. Now that is funny. Lost his job and the guy is blaming everyone but himself! Embarrassing, time to look in the mirror mate. Last thing we need right. Big week."
