Gabbidon fined for Twitter outburst
Wednesday 11 May 2011
West Ham defender Danny Gabbidon has been fined and warned about his future conduct following comments made on his Twitter account.
The 31-year-old was handed an improper conduct charge last month by the Football Association for a foul-mouthed message written in the wake of his side's 2-1 home defeat to Aston Villa.
Gabbidon, who has since closed down his account, wrote: "U know what, f*** the lot of you, u will never get another tweet from me again, you just don't get it do you. Bye bye."
The FA confirmed Gabbidon has been fined £6,000 for his comments.
