Norwich boss Lambert hits back at QPR's Warnock over Johnson claims

Norwich City boss Paul Lambert has hit back at QPR counterpart Neil Warnock.

Norwich City boss Paul Lambert has hit back at QPR counterpart Neil Warnock.

QPR boss Warnock accused midfielder Bradley Johnson, 24, of deliberately getting his skipper Joey Barton sent off over an alleged headbutt during the Canaries' stormy 2-1 win at Loftus Road last Monday.

But boss Lambert, whose side host Burnley today, said: "Some of the comments made about Bradley are absolutely ludicrous.

"He's certainly not a cheat that's for sure so if they are going to make accusations they should have some sort of foundation. Perhaps Neil Warnock should put his own house in order first."
