England and Liverpool defender Glen Johnson believes West Bromwich Albion defender Goran Popov and any player guilty of spitting should be banned for more than three matches. The Macedonian international was sent off during Albion's 1-0 home loss to Tottenham on Sunday after spitting in the direction of Spurs defender Kyle Walker.

"I personally think it should be more," the Reds player said.

"You see some people receiving a red card for trying to make a genuine tackle.

"You do something like that which is disgusting. No man should be faced with that. Personally I think the ban should be more."
