Everton celeb fan Barton slaughters Idrissa Gueye

Everton celeb fan Joey Barton has scoffed at the reputation of Toffees midfielder Idrissa Gueye.

Barton attacked Gueye in the aftermath of Everton's thrashing at Arsenal.

He told talkSPORT: "Idrissa Gueye? Remember when kids were on the play ground and they all chase after the ball, and then somebody runs off because a crisp packet blows across the play ground and he's braindead? That's Gueye.

"I think Schneiderlin is terrible, but it doesn't help having him alongside him because of the amount of times he vacates the middle of the park.

"Evertonians tell me he's a good player, I can't have it."
