Joey Barton has denied suggestions that he has revealed who the 'bad eggs' at QPR are.
The R's captain mentioned on Sky Sports last week that there were a handful of players holding the team back due to their dressing room antics and questionable motivation towards the club.
A newspaper has since 'revealed' the players in question being - Eduardo Vargas, Mauricio Isla, Mauro Zarate, Adel Taarabt and Armand Traore - but Barton immediately took to Twitter to play down those claims that he blames the quintet for their relegation from the Premier League.
Another piece of clueless journalism circulating this morning regarding me and QPR.— Joseph Barton (@Joey7Barton) May 12, 2015
For the record, I don't believe Vargas, Isla, Zarate, Taarabt or Traore are responsible for QPR's relegation.— Joseph Barton (@Joey7Barton) May 12, 2015
Interesting that this story was 'revealed' to this journalist. Easy to blame those not in a strong enough position to affect the group.— Joseph Barton (@Joey7Barton) May 12, 2015
