QPR Report Tuesday: Alan McDonald Tributes Continue...An Appeal for a "Living Memorial"

 -  RIP: Alan McDonald: The Tributes Continue: From Former Colleagues, Journalists and QPR Fans

   As one reads all the heart-warming memories and stories about Alan McDonald - the person as much as the player - it brings home, once again, how much QPR need to institute some form of Former Player Association.  To keep in touch with the players; to bring them to the fans; and yes, to help out, when needed - especially with health problems which came about from playing.  Other clubs do this. QPR should do no less.

Following a full internal investigation, Queens Park Rangers Football Club can confirm Joey Barton has been fined six weeks' wages and will no longer be Club Captain.

The 29 year-old midfielder will also be absent from the Club's pre-season tour of Asia in July.

The Club has also reached agreement with Barton that if he seriously breaches the Club's disciplinary procedures again, the Club reserves the right to terminate his contract.

CEO Philip Beard said: "It was important that we took our time to make sure we came to the correct decision, which I believe we have achieved.

"Joey's behaviour, which led to his red card at Manchester City, and his subsequent actions were completely unacceptable and we have made our feelings on this matter known to him.

"I am really pleased with the way in which the Club and Joey have worked towards reaching a sensible conclusion and we fully believe he will respond to these sanctions in the correct manner."

Barton said: "My behaviour was wrong and I accept the punishment that has been imposed upon me as a result.

"I apologise to the Manager, my team-mates and of course the QPR fans for my actions. I also apologise to the Manchester City players, staff and supporters."

*The Club and Joey Barton will be making no further comment.
