QPR boss considering Twitter crackdown
Hughes set to review club’s policy during the summer
Mark Hughes plans to review QPR’s policy regarding social networking sites – and has warned his players they will face ‘consequences’ for irresponsible use.
Rangers have so far refrained from joining the list of clubs who have banned players from using sites such as Twitter, although they do forbid team members from discussing club policies online.
However, with captain Joey Barton one of a number to become prolific users of Twitter this season, Hughes revealed he may introduce a code of conduct to regulate players’ activities.
“I think every club will look at their policy, we will review everything as a matter of course in the summer,” said Hughes. “If we think that it needs tightening up then we’ll look at that.
“At the moment players understand that they can’t talk about what happens within the club.
“If policies are let out then there are consequences to pay. We’re fine with it, but if we think it needs tightening up then we will.”
