Barton determined to "bounce back" after losing QPR captaincy
Sacked QPR captain Joey Barton says he'll bounce back.
After a QPR statement was released, Barton tweeted: "I was reckless and deserved every punishment I received. Money comes and goes, it's not important to me. Losing the captaincy and missing 12 games, is what really hurts.
"I was stupid and that what happens when u do dumb things. I am confident ill bounce back. Cannot wait. That's all I have to say on the matter. I wish to put it behind me now and help QPR, once available of course, push on towards the top half."
