Joey Barton was back at Loftus Road yesterday to see QPR thrashed by Liverpool.

Barton played in Marseille's 1-0 victory over Saint Etienne on December 23, but took the opportunity to put in an appearance at Loftus Road to watch the basement side attempt to topple the visiting Reds.

The loanee made the switch to the Ligue 1 club this summer, but first had to serve a 12-match domestic ban for his part in the final-day fracas at the Etihad Stadium last season.
