'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Barton caught up in Savile row

The never-ending story that is Joey Barton`s rap sheet looks set to continue with the news that James Tandy, the former Man City youth player that the Scouser cigared in the eye, is set to launch a civil case against him. Barton faces legal action for allegedly ruining the career of a former team-mate, lawyers said today.

No police action was taken at the time of the incident but the midfielder was fined by his former club. Tandy, 23, is now pursuing a civil claim for damages against Barton, his legal representatives confirmed.

He claimed he suffered a 'major psychiatric deterioration' following the assault which he said ultimately forced him out of the game at the top level.

Matthew Clayton, of Manchester-based law firm Ralli, said: 'Mr Tandy is a client of ours and we are in the process of launching civil proceedings. As a result of the assault by Joey Barton our client has suffered a major psychiatric deterioration in his health that has destroyed any chance he may have had of playing professional football at a high level. Understandably this is a high-profile case and at this stage we are unable to comment further.'

Tandy was released by Manchester City after he broke his leg while playing on loan with a Danish club. He is understood to be on the verge of joining non-league Hyde United on semi-professional terms.
