Joey Barton has described the four-match ban given to John Terry by the FA as a "shambles."

Barton tweeted his thoughts about the ban and £220,000 fine shortly after the FA made its decision.

Well I think that proves a lot. What an absolute farce. 12 games for violent conduct and only 4 for that. FA should be embarrassed

Moments earlier he tweeted:

Joey Barton was handed a 12 match ban after losing the plot in the last game of the season when his team, QPR, were playing Manchester City.
