Joey Barton ban harsh - Mills

Former England international Danny Mills believes the 12-match suspension given to Queens Park Rangers captain Joey Barton is "harsh".

Barton has been found guilty of two counts of violent conduct and fined £75,000 by the Football Association following his sending off in QPR's defeat at Manchester City on the final day of the season.

Mills, who was a former team-mate of Barton at Manchester City, says Barton has "let himself down", but feels the midfielder has been made an example of.
