FOOTBALL: Ferdinand suspended, fined over Twitter comment

Published:Thursday | October 30, 2014 | 1:25 PM

Queens Park Ranger defender Rio Ferdinand has been suspended for three matches and fined £25,000 by the Football Association for comments he made on Twitter.



The 35-year-old ex-England captain has also been severely warned as to his future conduct and told to attend an education programme arranged by the FA.



It is believed the misconduct charge related to a comment where he used the word "sket".



The definition of the term is "a promiscuous girl or woman".



He will meet with club chief executive Philip Beard today to discuss whether the club plans to appeal.
