Loftus Road midfielder becomes a father.
QPR captain Joey Barton became a father for the first time just hours after playing in Tuesday’s 1-1 draw at Swansea.
After his partner Georgia McNeil gave birth to a son, he shared his news with his 942,000 Twitter followers.
Barton wrote: “He’s here Cassius Joseph Barton. 7 pound 3 oz. Mother and baby are fine. Wow what a blessing that is.”
QPR chairman Tony Fernandes posted his congratulations, tweeting “Very happy to welcome the new ranger. Great news.”

Odd name, or great name? We can’t quite decide. Clearly Joey Barton is an admirer of the great Cassius Clay. Thoughts?
