Barton gets 12-match ban

Joey Barton has been banned for 12 games and fined £75k for violent conduct.

Barton accepted an FA charge against him for violent conduct after kneeing Sergio Aguero but denied a second charge of allegedly attempting to headbutt Vincent Kompany after already being sent off by referee Mike Dean for elbowing Carlos Tevez in QPR's 3-2 defeat against Man City.

No sooner had he received his sentence than he tweeted... 

"Can do nothing but apologise to the players and the fans"
