Norwich City striker Kyle Lafferty has been fined £23,000 and warned as to his future conduct after accepting an FA misconduct charge in relation to betting.
The Norwich City forward breached FA Rule E8, in respect of a bet placed on the result, progress, conduct or any other aspect of, or occurrence in, a football match or competition on February 20 2016.
Lafferty was charged last week and had until last Friday to respond but the FA confirmed on Monday afternoon the Northern Irishman has not contested the charge.
New rules over betting for those involved in football were introduced in August 2014.
The worldwide ban on betting was introduced on all those involved in the game at Premier League, Football League, National League and Women's Super League levels, as well as those at clubs in the Northern, Southern and Isthmian leagues and all other participants who do not fall into the category below.
Participants covered by the ban are prohibited from betting, either directly or indirectly, on any football match or competition that takes place anywhere in the world.
