[MLS DISCIPLINE] MLS Commissioner Don Garber has suspended San Jose Earthquakes star Alan Gordon for three games and fined him an undisclosed amount for the gay slur he made toward Portland Timbers captain Will Johnson in the 60th minute of Sunday's
match in Portland.
Garber also mandated that Gordon attend diversity and sensitivity training.
Gordon separately received a red card for his second caution for during the game and that ejection carries an automatic one-game suspension and fine.
The U.S. international will miss four games:
April 21 vs. Portland
April 27 at Chivas USA
May 4 vs. Montreal Impact
May 8 vs. Toronto FC.
“Major League Soccer stands against discrimination and prejudice of any kind and will not tolerate this type of behavior,” Garber said in a statement. “All of our players, staff and fans must remain committed to respect and dignity at all times.”
