Joey Barton calls Alex Scott ‘the Ted Bundy of presenting’ as he once again compares a female pundit to a serial killer – just weeks after he labelled Eni Aluko and Lucy Ward ‘the Fred and Rose West of football commentary’


  • Joey Barton has once again likened a female pundit to a serial killer
  • Alex Scott has been the target of repeated attack by the former Premier League midfielder
  • Barton had previously called Eni Aluko and Lucy Ward the Fred and Rose West of commentary

Joey Barton continued his vicious tirade against female football pundits making another comparison to a serial killer.

The former midfielder who made a single appearance for England has, this time, taken aim at the BBC‘s Alex Scott who presents Football Focus.

In a post to the social media site he compared Scott to notorious serial killer Ted Bundy who had confessed to 30 murders with more still unconfirmed.

On X he said: ‘Alex Scott the Ted Bundy of presenting’ in response to another users’ criticism of Football Focus. 

As previously stated it is not the first time the former Bristol Rovers manager has taken to the platform to call a female pundit a serial killer.

Back in January he made a sickening jibe at ITV’s Eni Aluko and Lucy Ward comparing the two to Fred and Rose West.

The Wests murdered 12 women and young girls over the course of 20 years. Fred took his own life before facing trial while Rose was sentenced to 10 life terms. She remains in prison aged 70.

That Twitter rant by Barton saw Aluko and Ward seek legal advice over the comments made.

The 41-year-old originally took aim at popular sports game EA Sports FC which includes female players playing alongside their maile counterparts in their Ultimate Team game mode.

Barton posted ‘I’ve seen them sneak that into FIFA. As well as rating the Women the same stats as the Men on the game. Clown World I’m not playing along.’

That jibe was in response to another user, Gareth Liver who had tagged Joey Barton saying ‘watching my lad play fifa and the commentators on there are women fml.’

Then attentions turned to Football Focus and Alex Scott where a user with the handle @fredsta 22 said: ‘Just watched football focus Presented by a giddy woman called Alex Scott who has the presenter skills of a nursery teacher. 

‘Poor Chris Sutton looked in pain answering questions. If ever an example of why some women are being shoe horned into roles they just don’t belong.’

That appeared to embolden Barton to make his comment where he called Scott the Ted Bundy of presenting.

But this is not the first time that the former QPR midfielder has taken a swipe at the former Arsenal and England defender.

In December in posts on X he said: ‘connntinnuuuuuuuhhhhhtuuuu [sic] what, sorry @AlexScott. I can’t say you don’t know men’s football? You don’t. Sorry. You don’t have a clue. And you were a really bad player compared to even a Sunday League player.

‘In my opinion, the winner of the FA National Sunday Cup this year would easily beat in a cup final, at Wembley for charity, the winner of the @BarclaysWSL @SkySportsWSL from this season. Or England Women @Lionesses.

‘I’ll happily have Alex on my podcast. I think I know more about football than her. I think I was a better player but I would like to see [or] hear her perspective.’

While he has continued to campaign against women analysing men’s sport he originally seemed to be in support of Alex Scott being a presenter.

As he had previously stated that Sscoot was ‘Fantastic women’s footballer. Decorated in her game. If she’s presenting a men’s game, no problem, anchor the show. But, no, she isn’t qualified to talk with any authority about the men’s game in my opinion.’

But it would appear that is now an opinon he has reneged on as he continues these vile jibes against the women in football media.
