Everton star Tim Cahill admits he was "disgusted" by comments from Newcastle United midfielder Yohan Cabaye which sparked his red card incident on Sunday.

The FA have rejected Everton's appeal to have the Aussie's three-match ban overturned.

Cahill has now issued a statement, through his management company Wasserman Media Group, in which he said: "I accept my three-match ban.

"My reaction at the end of the game was out of character but I was disgusted at comments made to me by Cabaye.

"I don't wish to elaborate on the exact detail of what was said - but his words have no place either on or off the football pitch.

"Cabaye has apologised via his club's website and as far as I am concerned the matter is now closed."
