QPR have fined Joey Barton six weeks wages and stripped him of the club captaincy.
QPR have also reached agreement with Barton that if he seriously breaches the club's disciplinary procedures again, they have the right to terminate his contract.
Barton received the punishment for his sending off after an altercation with Manchester City's Carlos Tevez in the final game of the season. Barton then kicked Sergio Aguero before leaving the field.
amazing he was ever captain in the first place
