Palace winger Puncheon risks Warnock legal action

Former Crystal Palace boss Neil Warnock is considering legal action against Jason Puncheon after a Twitter outburst this week.

Puncheon reacted furiously on Twitter after hearing Warnock discuss on talkSPORT his shocking penalty miss against Tottenham on Saturday.

Puncheon, on a season's loan from Southampton, tweeted allegations about Warnock's conduct when he was a manager. In his final tweet, he wrote: "Everything else is banter and opinions and as a man I will live with that which is fine but I will not live with his opinion."

Puncheon swiftly deleted the tweets but Warnock was upset by the comments and insists he is innocent of any wrong-doing.

He told the London Evening Standard: "I have been made aware of the comments this morning. The first tweet I haven't got a problem with but in his later tweets he has made comments which I know nothing about.

"If it's being suggested that I have done anything untoward, I can confirm that I most certainly have not.

"I notice Jason removed his tweets almost straight away but the matter is being addressed indirectly on my part. In the circumstances there is nothing more I can say."
