Liverpool youngster Harvey Elliott was on Friday hit with a 14-day ban in all domestic club football after using offensive language to mock Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane in a video posted on social media.

Elliott admitted to the offense and issued an apology when the video surfaced earlier this season.

The 16-year-old who made his senior team debut in a 2-0 League Cup win at MK Dons last month impersonated Kane during last season’s Champions League final when Liverpool beat Spurs in Madrid.

According to a statement by the FA, the video constituted an “aggravated breach” of its rules as it included reference to disability.

The player was also fined £350 and asked to complete a “face-to-face education course”.
