Joey Barton says that the Justin Bieber fans who waited two hours for the singer to appear on stage at the O2 need to get their "heads tested pronto".

Marseille midfielder Joey Barton has criticised fans of Canadian pop star Justin Bieber for waiting for the teen, who was late to appear for his concert at the O2 Arena.

Fans were forced to wait two hours for the 19-year-old to appear on stage, which has angered Barton, who recently described the singer as a "smack addiction waiting to happen".

Barton wrote on Twitter: "Told you all two days ago Bieber was a C U Next Tuesday, his two hour delay only confirms this...

"I can understand girls under the age of 14 going and maybe some young lads a little bit light on the old loafers. But anyone over 18? No!

"Anyone who waited for 2 hours for that 'Berk' last night, over the age of 18, wants their f**king heads testing pronto..."

Following his earlier criticism of Bieber, the midfielder, who is on loan at the Ligue 1 club from Queens Park Rangers, has received angry tweets from fans of the singer.
