Warnock: Barton out of order

Queens Park Rangers manager Neil Warnock feels Joey Barton's recent comments about Adel Taarabt were a "little bit out of order".

Speaking after Saturday's 1-1 draw with Blackburn, Barton, who joined QPR from Newcastle in the summer, told Absolute Radio he has yet to see Taarabt's so-called "genius" while questioning his work-rate.

Warnock believes Barton's criticism of the Morocco international was harsh and plans to speak with his captain. "What he is saying about Adel I think is a little bit out of order," the QPR boss told ESPN's Between the Lines.

"I think there is one or two lads in the team at the moment that could do better so sometimes you look elsewhere. If he wants Adel to chase about and tackle and run, he is never going to be able to do that.

"I've not spoken to him. You're just telling me what has been said. I'll probably have a chat with him (on Tuesday) and see what he actually said."

Warnock went on to highlight Taarabt's qualities, the playmaker having helped propel QPR to the Premier League last season as he scored 19 Championship goals and notched 16 assists.

"If you looked at what Adel is not good at, you wouldn't touch him with a barge pole," Warnock said. "You've got to look at what he is good at and we would not be where we are now without him, without me looking at what he is good at.

"If he wants Adel to chase about and tackle and run, he is never going to be able to do that. Yes, he might not be able to crack in the Premier League. Even Adel doesn't know that yet. He is only a young lad. You forget he is a young kid really.

"I think he is trying very, very hard at the moment and the next few games will be interesting. I think when you're playing the top clubs you need that something special to win you games.

"We've missed his contribution goal-wise and hopefully, if Joey plays really well and some of the other lads play really well, the opportunities for Adel will come.

"If Adel gets an opportunity and plays well he is an asset to anybody in that league. Yes, he has not scored in the Premier League yet, he has not set the world alight but he has had opportunities and I think [he will continue to do so]."
