The former Newcastle man has been comparing the manager with the Aston Villa defender.
Nothing quite picks you up after a 6-0 thumping than tweeting a picture of a car. pic.twitter.com/33af6zCuQd— Top Corner (@HITCtopcorner) February 14, 2016
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.
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...
@warrenbarton2 is that as bad as a manager grinning like a chimp after your team getting beat 5-1— Dave Bland (@chunkyD31) February 14, 2016
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?
