Nottingham Forest's Miller cops £2,500 Twitter fine

Nottingham Forest striker Ishmael Miller has been hit with a £2,500 fine by the Football Association for comments he recently posted in social networking site Twitter.

The 24-year old former West Bromwich Albion forward responded angrily via Twitter to criticism directed at him by Forest fans after the club's 1-0 loss to Coventry City on October 15 and has been charged with improper conduct and bringing the game into disrepute by English football's governing body.

"Nottingham Forest's Ishmael Miller has been warned as to his future conduct and fined £2,500 for comments he made on Twitter," read an FA statement.

"Miller had admitted the charge of improper conduct/bringing the game into disrepute for making comments on the social networking service."
