Former Rangers defender Kirk Broadfoot has been handed one of the English FA’s longest ever suspensions on Friday after allegations he subjected an opponent to sectarian abuse.

Broadfoot is now employed at Rotherham, but is said to have verbally abused West Brom’s James McLean, who at the time refused to wear a poppy on his shirt in commemoration of D-Day when the Irishman played for Wigan Athletic. The former Scotland international received the hefty ban after being summoned to an FA tribunal with club officials to face charges of sectarianism.

It’s not been reported exactly what he said, but considering it tops Luis Suarez’s eight-match ban for his fun in with Patrice Evra – it must have been pretty brutal!
