Burnley striker Andre Gray handed 4-match ban

Burnley striker Andre Gray has been given a four-match ban for comments made on social media, the Football Association has announced.

Gray's ban is immediate, meaning he will miss Burnley's Premier League game at home to Watford on Monday evening followed by fixtures with Arsenal, Southampton and Everton.

The tweets, which also contained offensive terms, were posted when Gray was playing for non-league Hinckley United.

They came to light on August 20, the day he scored his first top-flight goal as he helped Burnley - who he joined from Brentford in 2015 - to a 2-0 win over Liverpool at Turf Moor.
