Aston Villa chief executive Keith Wyness has been suspended from all football and football-related activity for three weeks for misconduct via social media.
He admitted an FA charge that a comment he re-tweeted accompanied with a video was abusive and/or insulting and/or improper and/or brought the game into disrepute contrary to FA Rule E3(1). Furthermore, the breach was “aggravated” as defined in FA Rule E3(2), as it included a reference to disability.
Following an Independent Regulatory Commission hearing, Wyness was also fined £10,000 and ordered to complete an education course.
His suspension will run from date of the expiry of the period that he has to appeal the decision.
