HE’S ALREADY served a six-month jail sentence for assault – and now Joey Barton is in more hot water over what appeared to be a Nazi salute as part of a goal celebration.

Barton scored the first of Newcastle’s six goals in a home thumping of Aston Villa yesterday, but seemed to cap off his celebration by putting his fist to his moustache and offering a fascist-style straight-armed salute as he wheeled away.

Barton later explained that his gesture was meant to imply that his moustache was about to be shaved off – which it was, immediately after the game, in the St James’ Park dressing rooms.

I was simply saying the moustache goes. It was either the end of the moustache or my relationship, so I’m relieved.

His manager, Chris Hughton, was satisfied the gesture was innocently-intended having seen TV replays afterward.
