Ex-QPR boss Warnock and Palace winger Puncheon in twitter bust-up

Neil Warnock has rejected comments made by Crystal Palace's Jason Puncheon that question his integrity, reports BBC Sport. Puncheon, who played under Warnock while on loan at QPR, tweeted the claims about the 65-year-old while responding to criticism of his penalty miss in the 2-0 defeat by Tottenham.

"If it's been suggested I have done anything untoward, I can confirm I most certainly haven't," Warnock retorted.

"The matter is being addressed with him directly on my behalf."

Puncheon's penalty miss came in the opening 10 minutes at White Hart Lane with the game still goalless, and Warnock said: "There's no way I would've trusted him with a penalty. You've got to have somebody a little bit more cool, and he's not like that, Jason.

"He can whack a 35-yard free-kick in here and there but a penalty, with all the pressure on him at a place like White Hart Lane - not in a million years for me.

"I think a centre-half might have done a bit better! Obviously, he never meant to put it up there."
