Barton suspended for remainder of season

According to BBC Sport, Joey Barton has been suspended by City for the remainder of the season as a result of a bust up Tuesday at Carrington. Barton is alleged to have hit Ousmane Dabo, who went to hospital for injuries to his mouth.

City have yet to publicly announce the suspension, while Barton's agent Willie McKay is downplaying the incident and claiming that Joey was defending himself.
