Ipswich Town Football Club is telling Heart they've banned a supporter for making racist comments on Twitter.

Ipswich Town have now stopped them from going to all their home and away games after a racist tweet about a rival supporter.

Simon Clegg, Town's chief executive, told the Club website: "There seems to have been a recent resurgence of homophobic and racist issues within football and as a Club we are absolutely committed to supporting the Football Association and Football League in helping to stamp these out.

"Football is a game of passion both on the field and off it but we will not hesitate to take action against any individual associated with this Club who is involved in inappropriate behaviour.

"Ipswich Town fans have an excellent reputation at home and away and I'm determined that the good name of the majority is protected."
