Taylor told talkSPORT: "I can't really defend such behaviour [by Joey Barton]. His reputation will go in front of him and it's extremely disappointing. I just feel he's his own worst enemy. We're back to square one.
"I'm not saying I won't support him because he does need that help but it's recurring and he's getting to the later stages of his career and it does get very exasperating and frustrating.
"We [as players] have a duty to the game that has given us our living and from that point of view you just have to count to 10 or maybe in his case 50 [if you get angry].
"It is a situation where he needs help but there will be many people who say, 'how many chances do you give to such a player?' particularly when he's becoming more mature as an adult."
