The FA has fined West Ham starlet Ravel Morrison £7000, after he was found guilty of making homophobic comments on Twitter.
The remark on the social networking site was apparently in response to a comment made by another user, and the extent of Morrison’s punishment has been revealed by the game’s governing body.
“West Ham United’s Ravel Morrison has been fined £7,000 and warned as to his future conduct after he admitted a charge of using abusive and/or insulting words including a reference to a person’s sexual orientation,” an official FA statement reads.
“The charge was in relation to comments Morrison made on Twitter.”
Morrison was adjudged as one of the brightest prospects at Manchester United, but refused to sign a new deal at Old Trafford and instead decided to leave to join The Hammers in the January transfer window.
This case of indiscipline is not the first in the midfielder’s past, as he was once fined £600 for throwing his girlfriend’s phone out of a window after an argument, has been cautioned by police for assaulting his mother and also admitted to witness intimidation last year.
