Robert Snodgrass has been fined £30,000 and banned for one game for verbally abusing drug testers at West Ham’s training ground.
Snodgrass appears to have become embroiled in a dispute with testers despite claims from club insiders that he was not selected for a test nor did he refuse one.
On Tuesday the FA demonstrated that such an attitude towards officers serving to protect the integrity of sport was completely unacceptable.

On what proved a busy day for the FA’s disciplinary officials, Everton’s Andre Gomes was banned for three matches after accepting a charge of violent conduct.
In an incident that was missed by match officials but caught on video, Gomes stamped on Fulham forward Aleksandar Mitrovic in the 95th minute of last Saturday’s Premier League clash at Craven Cottage.
Gomes made a late challenge and appeared to slam his studs into Mitrovic’s ankle while the Serb was lying on the ground. The clash was not seen by referee Lee Probert.
