Rotherham´s Broadfoot handed 10-match ban

Rotherham United’s Kirk Broadfoot has been handed a 10-match ban for reportedly aiming verbal abuse at then-Wigan Athletic forward James McClean.

The 30-year-old former Rangers defender was found guilty by the Football Association (FA) for using “abusive and/or insulting words” towards a member of the opposition during the sides’ Championship fixture in March.

That player is believed to be McClean – now at Premier League club West Brom – with the abuse reported to be a of a sectarian nature.

Republic of Ireland international McClean has been in the headlines this week after snubbing the English national anthem during a pre-season tour with West Brom.

Broadfoot’s ban is longer than the eight-match suspension handed to Liverpool’s Luis Suarez when he was found guilty by the FA of racially abusing Patrice Evra in 2011.

The Rotherham man was also fined £7,500 and ordered to complete an education programme.
