Barton takes former Man Utd captain to task - ‘The Neville myth has exploded!’

Joey Barton has teed off on Gary Neville in the wake of England's dismal Euro2016 exit at the hands of Iceland.

The Three Lions were beaten 2-1 in the Round of 16 in Nice on Monday night in what was the country's most disappointing result at a major tournament.

Newly-signed Rangers midfielder Barton, who is never backward in going forwards, launched a tirade on Twitter pointing out the shortcomings of Roy Hodgson's side while suggesting former Manchester United captain Neville was out of depth in the assistant coach role.
