English FA announced on Thursday that Jack Simpson, a 26-year-old former Cardiff City defender, has been suspended for six matches and fined after he admitted to using racist language towards a teammate.
The incident occurred during Cardiff’s pre-season tour in Portugal. Simpson, who previously played for Rangers, departed from Cardiff in August and has been a free agent since then.
Simpson was fined 8,000 pounds and will undergo “face-to-face education,” the FA said in a statement.
“Jack Simpson admitted the charge against him, and his sanctions were imposed following a hearing,” the FA added.
