QPR captain Barton denies naming Taarabt, Traore, Zarate as 'bad eggs'

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.
