A Manchester City supporter is banned from attending the club's home and away games for five years after racially abusing Queens Park Rangers defender Anton Ferdinand.

Manchester City supporter Stephen Best has been banned from watching the club play for five years after racially abusing Queens Park Rangers defender Anton Ferdinand.

The 31-year-old denied at Manchester Magistrates' Court that he was a racist after he was accused of calling Ferdinand a "black bastard" during September's 3-1 win over QPR.

A woman attending the match at the time confronted Best, to which he replied: "John Terry said it", according to the Manchester Evening News.

The supporter has been banned from visiting the Etihad Stadium as well as attending away matches and England games.
