FA suspends Brentford’s Alan McCormack for five games after being found guilty of misconduct


The 32-year-old midfielder has been punished for using “abusive and/or insulting words towards a match official” in the second half of Brentford’s 2-1 victory over Cardiff City in April last season.

A statement from the FA read: “It was further alleged that this breach was an “aggravated breach” as defined in FA Rule E3(2), as it included a reference to gender.


The player denied the charge, however, it was found proven following an Independent Regulatory Commission hearing on Thursday [October 20, 2016].”

McCormack, who was also fined £6,000 and ordered to attend an education course, will miss games against Barnsley, Queens Park Rangers, Fulham, Blackburn Rovers and Birmingham City.
