‘I have accepted my punishment and want to learn from this experience to grow as a person.

‘I want to thank everyone at the club for the support they have shown me and am determined to pay them back through my actions on an off the pitch.’

The club is set to deal with the matter internally.

It comes after he was stopped by police on October 20 driving his £35,000 Mercedes – despite having been banned in the summer.

He was banned in June after failing to provide a specimen of breath to police.
