Five-year ban for racist Millwall fan


A Millwall fan who racially abused the Leeds striker El-Hadji Diouf during a Championship game on 18 November has been banned from all football matches for five years.

Gerrard Scanlon, 53, a delivery driver from north London, was already banned for life by Millwall.

Scanlon admitted racial abuse of the Senegalese player at Bromley Magistrates' Court yesterday. He was ordered to pay £525 in fines and costs.
