No action over Barton’s tweets

The Attorney General’s office will not be taking action over Joey Barton’s recent posts on Twitter relating to the John Terry case.

Barton made a number of comments about the Chelsea captain, who will stand trial in July after being accused of racially abusing QPR’s Anton Ferdinand. Terry strongly denies doing so.

Rangers manager Mark Hughes had indicated that he planned to speak to Barton about his remarks.
