QPR's Barton happy to "gloat" over Elliott demise

QPR midfielder Joey Barton was in full "gloat" mode over the demise of Paul Elliott yesterday.

Former Chelsea and Celtic defender Elliott has resigned from the FA after a racism row with former Charlton Athletic defender Richard Rufus.

Barton, on-loan at Marseille, tweeted: "Is that the same Paul Elliot that sat on the discipline panel that handed me a 12 match ban? He was taking himself ever so serious back then, with all his clueless FA buddies.

"Then loses his head and calls another black man a n****r? What a f******* imbecile. I cant help but gloat at his downfall.

"He's the same d******* that tried to sue another player for ending his career even though it was him that tried to top the player (Dean Saunders). What an idiot."
