Norwich City defender Ryan Bennett has been fined £8,000 by the FA over comments he made on Twitter.

After an independent regulatory commission hearing, Bennett was also warned as to his future conduct after admitting an FA misconduct charge in relation to social media.

The charge was for a breach of FA Rule E3 in that he used abusive and/or insulting and/or threatening words in comments posted on Twitter.

The 23-year-old defender was reported to have reacted to comments from Arsenal fans.

Bennett has appeared in City's last three Premier League games in place of the injured Michael Turner.
