West Ham defender Danny Gabbidon has been fined

London:

West Ham defender Danny Gabbidon has been fined £6,000 (9,600 dollars) and given a warning about his future conduct after swearing at fans on Twitter, it was confirmed on Tuesday.

Gabbidon, 31, was charged with improper conduct in April after posting a foul-mouthed message on the micro-blogging site following his team's 2-1 defeat to Aston Villa.

"U know what, f**k the lot of you, u will never get another tweet from me again, you just don't get it do you. Bye bye," said Gabbidon, who has since closed down his Twitter account.

The FA confirmed Gabbidon's punishment in a statement on Tuesday.

"At an Independent Regulatory Commission, West Ham United defender Danny Gabbidon was fined and warned as to his future conduct," the statement said.

"Gabbidon was charged with improper conduct in relation to media comments made on the social media site Twitter on 16 April 2011."

"Having admitted the charge, Gabbidon was fined £6,000."

Gabbidon's comments came soon after teammate Carlton Cole was fined £20,000 for comments on Twitter about Ghana fans during their friendly against England.
