Newcastle United: FA to remind Barton of "responsibilities"

Joey Barton will not face disciplinary action from the Football Association for apparently making an offensive gesture towards Liverpool's Fernando Torres.

The FA have investigated the incident that happened during Newcastle's 3-1 win over Liverpool at the weekend and have decided just to write to the Magpies midfielder.

An FA spokesman said: "We will be writing to him to remind him of his responsibilities."
