West Ham midfielder Ravel Morrison has been fined £7,000 by the Football Association in response to a homophobic remark made on Twitter.

Morrison, who completed an undisclosed switch to Upton Park from Manchester United at the end of January, is reported to have made the comment in response to another Twitter user. The 19-year-old admitted a charge of using abusive and/or insulting words including a reference to a person's sexual orientation.

An FA statement read: "West Ham United's Ravel Morrison has been fined £7,000 and warned as to his future conduct after he admitted a charge of using abusive and/or insulting words including a reference to a person's sexual orientation."
