Suspended for homophobic comments made four years ago
Burnley forward Andre Gray has been suspended for four matches commencing with immediate effect for misconduct in respect of social media comments, FA writes on its website, and continues:

It was alleged that six postings on his Twitter account were abusive and/or insulting and/or improper and/or brought the game into disrepute contrary to Rule E3(1).

It was further alleged that these breaches of Rule E3(1) included a reference to sexual orientation and/or gender and/or colour and/or race contrary to Rule E3(2).

The player admitted to three of the breaches, and denied the remaining three were in breach of FA Rules.

Following an Independent Regulatory Commission hearing yesterday [22 September 2016], the remaining three breaches were found proven.

The player was also fined £25,000, warned as to his future conduct and ordered to attend an FA education course."

Apparently one of the tweets said: "Is it just me, or are there gays everywhere? #burn #die #makesmesick."

Gray apologised when the now four-year-old message began to spread in social media, and according to the Burnley player he is now a "completely different person than the one he was when he wrote the homophobic comments."
