Bursaspor’s Colin Kazim-Richards was found guilty on Wednesday of making a homophobic gesture to Brighton and Hove Albion fans last season.

Brighton magistrates court found the 27-year-old striker, who was on loan at Blackburn Rovers at the time, guilty of using abusive or insulting behaviour and fined him £750.

Kazim-Richards made the gesture during a Championship clash at the AMEX Stadium in February.

He denied the charge, reportedly telling the court that he was “having a bit of banter” with the opposition fans.

The court also heard that Kazim-Richards had been subjected to chants from the Brighton fans prior to the incident.

Kazim-Richards scored three league goals during his loan spell at Ewood Park, and was transferred to Bursaspor from Galatasaray at the start of the current campaign.
