If you are a footballer, don't tweet any anti-gay statement

Two more footballers have been fined for making anti-gay comments on Twitter.

Nile Ranger, a forward for Newcastle and Walsall’s Manny Smith have been handed fines by the FA for their conduct.

Ranger must pay £6,000, Smith £1,200.

The pair were accused of acting in a way which was “improper and/or brought the game into disrepute”, including “a reference to a person’s or persons’ sexual orientation” along with Federico Macheda, on whom details have not been released.
