Aston Villa chief executive Keith Wyness banned over social media post

Keith Wyness has been suspended by the Football Association.

Aston Villa chief executive Keith Wyness has been suspended from all football-related activity for three weeks by the Football Association for misconduct relating to a social media post.

The 59-year-old shared a Twitter video of Villa being denied a penalty during the final game of the Championship season against Brighton last month which had a caption questioning whether under-performing referees had "disabilities."

An FA statement read: "He admitted an FA charge that a comment he re-tweeted accompanied with a video was abusive and/or insulting and/or improper and/or brought the game into disrepute contrary to FA Rule E3(1).

"Furthermore, the breach was 'aggravated' as defined in FA Rule E3(2), as it included a reference to disability.

"Following an Independent Regulatory Commission hearing, Wyness was also fined £10,000 and ordered to complete an education course.

"His suspension will run from date of the expiry of the period that he has to appeal the decision."
