Video: Joey Barton happy to let Charlie Austin take Queens Park Rangers penalties

Joey Barton admits that he has had to relinquish his role as penalty taker for Queens Park Rangers to Charlie Austin.

Joey Barton has relinquished penalty-taking duties at Queens Park Rangers, allowing striker Charlie Austin to take over from 12 yards.

Summer signing Austin has scored a penalty in each of the last two games against Yeovil and Middlesbrough and Barton, who takes the majority of the club's set pieces, told the club website that he is now happy to let the 24-year-old have the role.

"As long as he keeps taking them and scoring them, which I think he's more than capable of doing," said Barton. "I don't care who scores as long as we win football matches."

Watch below to see Barton talk about the situation.
