Liverpool’s Elliott banned over Kane barbs

By AAP Newswire

Liverpool youngster Harvey Elliott has been suspended from all domestic club football for 14 days after using offensive language to mock Tottenham striker Harry Kane on social media.

The English Football Association (FA) said on Friday that Elliott, 16, admitted to a breach of its rules after impersonating England captain Kane on a Snapchat video during last season's Champions League final when Liverpool beat Spurs in Madrid.

Elliott, who made his Liverpool debut in a 2-0 League Cup win at MK Dons last month, issued an apology when the video came to light earlier this season.

The FA said in a statement that the video constituted an "aggravated breach" of its rules as it included reference to disability.

Elliott was also fined STG350 ($A652) and asked to complete a "face-to-face education course."
