Candid Barton explains QPR switch

QPR's new signing Joey Barton speaks candidly to BBC Sport's Richard Connelly about the reasons behind his move from Newcastle United.

The 28-year-old completed his free transfer having fallen out with the club's owners in the final year of his contract at St James' Park after using Twitter to criticise transfer policy.

With Barton not registered in time to line up for Rangers on Saturday, his debut could come against Newcastle in the Premier League game at Loftus Road on 12 September.
