Burnley forward Andre Gray has been given a four-match ban for comments made on social media.

The 25-year-old had been charged by the Football Association for bringing the game into disrepute over homophobic posts he made on Twitter in 2012.

Following an Independent Regulatory Commission hearing on Thursday, Gray was also fined £25,000, warned as to his future conduct and ordered to attend an FA education course.
