Danny Gabbidon lets rip on Twitter

Danny Gabbidon could find himself in hot water with the FA over an F-word Twitter rant during the early hours of Sunday morning. The West Ham defender, who played in Saturday's 2-1 home defeat against Aston Villa, tweeted: 'U know what, f*** the lot of you, u will never get another tweet from me again, you just don't get it do you. Bye bye.' Gabiddon appeared to have shut down his Twitter account yesterday - but could yet find himself in trouble with the FA and his club. It is unclear what provoked Gabbidon into the X-rated post, nevertheless West Ham are unlikely to be happy with the conduct of the Wales international. Outburst: Gabbidon could face an FA charge His outburst happened just four days after team-mate Carlton Cole accepted a charge of improper conduct for comments made on the popular website during England's friendly against Ghana which people complained were racist. In light of Cole's charge, Hammers players were reminded of their responsibilities regarding social networking sites like Twitter, and another furore will infuriate Upton Park chiefs. The FA's disciplinary team will look at the issue this morning with the most likely punishment being a warning. However, Wayne Rooney was recently hit with a two-game ban for swearing into a camera during Sky Sports' live coverage of Manchester United's 4-2 win over West Ham. And with the FA keen to breathe fresh impetus into their Respect campaign, Wembley chiefs are likely to take a dim view of Gabbidon's swear word outburst. Apart from Cole, former Liverpool forward Ryan Babel is the only other player to be charged by the FA over a Twitter-related offence. The Holland international was hit with an improper conduct charge after posting a mocked-up picture of referee Howard Webb wearing a Manchester United shirt after the Anfield club's 1-0 FA Cup third round defeat in January. And the fact there is no precedent for Gabbidon's offence, given Cole's charge was for discrimination and Babel's for questioning the integrity of an official, could work in the defender's favour as he looks to dodge possible sanctions. Gabbidon and West Ham were unavailable for comment on Sunday night.  Easy rider Robbie Keane breaks the rules by taking a ride on the back of a motorbikeDarren Bent's pity: Aston Villa striker feels sorry for sinking former club SunderlandWest Ham 1 Aston Villa 2: Last-gasp Gabby piles Ag-ony onto HammersAll the latest West Ham United news, features and opinion  Explore more:People: Ryan Babel, Danny Gabbidon, Carlton Cole, Wayne Rooney Places: Liverpool, The Netherlands, United Kingdom, Wales, Ghana, Anfield Club
