Reds fan given four year ban

A Liverpool fan has been given a four-year ban from attending Liverpool or England games after being found guilty of racially abusing Patrice Evra.

Phillip Gannon, 58, was caught on TV cameras making a racially offensive monkey impression towards the Manchester United player, Liverpool Magistrates' Court was told.

The incident occurred during the FA Cup fourth round fixture between the two sides on January 28 this year, amid a hostile atmosphere at Anfield. The game followed an eight match ban handed to Liverpool striker Luis Suarez, who was found guilty of racially abusing Evra.

In the 23rd minute, Gannon was caught by a TV camera panning across the lower Centenary Stand positioning his hands under his armpits. The coverage, broadcast worldwide by ITV, quickly prompted police complaints, the court heard.

Gannon, from Heol Meirion, Barmouth, north Wales, was found guilty of two counts of using abusive or insulting words within the hearing or sight of a person likely to be caused alarm or distress.

The bench handed down a four-year banning order which stops Gannon from attending Liverpool and England games and also bans him from Liverpool city centre four hours before and after a match.

Gannon was also fined a total £180 and ordered to pay prosecution costs of £300.
