West Ham winger Robert Snodgrass was handed a one-match ban on Tuesday after being found guilty of misconduct towards UK Anti-Doping officials.

The Football Association announced an Independent Regulatory Commission found Snodgrass guilty of the offence.

It is believed Scotland international Snodgrass, who was not scheduled for a test and didn't refuse to take it, was abusive to the officials when they visited West Ham's training ground in February.

The 31-year-old was also fined £30,000 ($39,000) and an FA statement read: "A misconduct charge against Robert Snodgrass has been found proven by an Independent Regulatory Commission.

"It was alleged that his language and/or behaviour towards UK Anti-Doping officials, who were visiting West Ham United's training ground on 06 February 2019, was abusive and/or insulting and/or improper.

"The player has been given a one-match suspension, which is not currently active whilst he considers his right of appeal, and fined £30,000."
