Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane has become one of the shining lights of English football over the last few years, transforming from Spurs academy starlet to England captain.

After all that Kane has achieved in the game, you would think that he deserves some respect from his fellow footballers, however, Liverpool starlet Harvey Elliott certainly did not show this courtesy in an online video.

The 16-year-old posted an offensive video on Snapchat calling Kane a ‘f****** m***’ as his side was defeated by Liverpool in the Champions League final back in June (BBC).

The winger has now admitted to using derogatory language in his insult, claiming that he was unaware the word was a term used to mock the disabled community.

Elliott has now been banned from all domestic club football for two weeks, with Jordan Henderson also talking to the player about his behaviour. Not only this, but the Liverpool player will have to pay a £350 fine and attend a face-to-face education course.

Some Spurs fans have reacted on Twitter:

Spurs Web Opinion:

This is all well and good, but I don’t see any mention of an apology to Harry Kane himself. Kane deserves some respect, especially from a young English player who, presumably, is looking to break into the national side with Kane in the coming years.
