AN Aston Villa fan has been banned from games for three years for racially abusing England star Raheem Sterling.
He admitted a racially aggravated section 5 public order offence at Birmingham magistrates’ court on Tuesday.
Hyslop, of Burton, Staffs, was given a three-year football banning order and ordered to pay fines and costs of £538.
PC Stuart Ward of West Midlands Police — the UK’s first dedicated football hate crime officer — said: “This kind of behaviour will not be tolerated.
“Abusing anyone for the colour of their skin is disgusting.
“There is no place for racism in football or society in general.”
