Snodgrass appeals against abuse charge

Filed: Wednesday, 20th March 2019
By: Staff Writer

Robert Snodgrass has appealed against the decision to charge him for abusing a doping official.

The Scottish winger was charged with using "abusive and/or insulting words" towards the agent during a routine visit to West Ham's Rush Green training ground last month.

However Snodgrass - who has privately insisted that he was innocent - has contested the charge by requesting a personal hearing with the governing body.

The 31-year-old was accused of making an abusive comment towards the official despite not being one of those tested.

Should he be found guilty, Snodgrass could face a fine of up to 12,000 - a figure that would have been reduced to 8,000 has he admitted his guilt.
