On-loan midfielder Joey Barton says that he is gutted for his parent club Queens Park Rangers following their relegation from the Premier League this afternoon.

Joey Barton has described himself as "gutted" following Queens Park Rangers' relegation from the Premier League, blaming the players for the club's struggles this season.

The Hoops drew 0-0 with Reading this afternoon, ensuring that both clubs will drop into the Championship next season.

The midfielder, who is on loan at Marseille, tweeted: "Gutted for the club. Some good lads but not enough. Too many maggots.

"I can't believe QPR have just been relegated and [Jose] Boswinga was walking down the tunnel laughing! Embarrassing. Show some guts.

"Hope they can get a load out, if not they'll end up in a Wolves situation because trust me that Championship is a f*cking hard league!"

Barton, who was QPR's captain last season, joined the club from Newcastle United in 2011.
