The English Football Association has charged Queens Park Rangers captain Joey Barton with two counts of violent conduct during Sunday's Premier League finale at Manchester City.

The midfielder was sent off for elbowing Carlos Tevez and then kicked Sergio Aguero and tried to headbutt Vincent Kompany before being escorted off the pitch by his teammates.

The FA says ''as Barton had already been dismissed, both of these incidents fell outside of the jurisdiction of the referee.''
