Warren Barton reacts to Lescott tweet, compares it to Newcastle boss's antics

The former Newcastle man has been comparing the manager with the Aston Villa defender.

Joleon Lescott infuriated Aston Villa fans on Twitter on Sunday afternoon, posting a picture of a flash car after his side's 6-0 loss to Liverpool on Sunday afternoon.

And former Newcastle United defender Warren Barton was far from impressed.

But the Villa man isn't the only one frustrating fans with his post-match demeanour. Indeed, Newcastle boss Steve McClaren has the Magpies faithful fuming with his laughing and smiling after huge defeats.

One follower subsequently asked Barton to compare Lescott's actions with the Newcastle boss.

And he feels the two are on par...

Aston Villa centre-back Lescott did post an apology several hours later - but the excuse he provided was one it seems even he didn't believe.

You would expect the club to discipline the defender after being so insensitive to paying supporters. Yet, the way the club is run, it's the least of their concerns.

The question is: will Aston Villa and Newcastle get relegated together?
