QPR boss Warnock unhappy with row between Barton and Wolves midfielder Henry

QPR boss Neil Warnock is unhappy with the row between skipper Joey Barton and Wolves midfielder Karl Henry.

Warnock admits it is a shame that the war of words has drawn attention away from the Londoners' performance.

"You say things and do things, don't you?" he said.

"I think in that particular case, it's best to put it to bed really - it's like a Coronation Street episode. He knows my feelings on it.

"I was a little bit disappointed with the Henry things but really it all came down to a linesman stood two yards away not giving a free-kick for a terrible tackle.

"If that free-kick had been given then there would not have been any publicity or anything mentioned about it.

"Up until then I thought it was just a competitive game with no animosity.

"Henry is a good player, a good pro, like (Wolves manager) Mick (McCarthy) says.

"He's a genuine lad - Joey's the same.

"I think Joey has responded quite well in the circumstances.

"The disappointment for me was that all that was talked about was Barton and Henry when the performance was the best team performance I've ever had as a team.

"I thought the individuals in the team were absolutely magnificent but that only got one paragraph, which was disappointing.

"I explained that to Joey and he understood that.

"I think it was just a one-off because of the previous that they have had together."
