Queens Park Rangers defender Rio Ferdinand has been banned for three games and fined £25,000 for comments on social networking website Twitter. 

The 35-year-old defender has been banned for using the word “sket” on twitter. A Twitter user sent the message “Maybe QPR will sign a good CB (centre-back) they need one”, to which Ferdinand replied by saying “get ya mum in, plays the field well son! #sket”.

The FA said in a statement on its website: “Queens Park Rangers defender Rio Ferdinand has been suspended for three matches commencing with immediate effect, subject to any appeal, after an FA misconduct charge against him was found proven.

“It was alleged a comment Ferdinand posted on his twitter account was abusive and/or indecent and/or insulting and/or improper.

“It was further alleged that this breach was aggravated pursuant to FA rule E3(2) as the comment included a reference to gender.

“Following an independent regulatory commission hearing on Wednesday 29 October, Ferdinand was also fined £25,000, severely warned as to his future conduct and ordered to attend an education programme, arranged by the FA within four months.”
