West Ham midfielder Robert Snodgrass has been given a one-match ban after an Independent Regulatory Commission found him guilty of misconduct towards UK Anti-Doping officials, the Football Association has announced.
The Scotland international was not scheduled to be tested nor did he refuse to take a test when officials visited West Ham's training ground in February.
"A misconduct charge against Robert Snodgrass has been found proven by an Independent Regulatory Commission," the FA statement read.
"It was alleged that his language and/or behaviour towards UK Anti-Doping officials, who were visiting West Ham United's training ground on February 6 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."
Snodgrass has featured 36 times for West Ham in all competitions this season and has scored four goals.
