Gerrard to attend course

Ex-Latics' defender Anthony Gerrard has been ordered to attend an anti-racism course. It stems from a joke on social media that ultimately led to him being fired from Boundary Park with one year of his contract left.

The cousin of former Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard, was handed a lifeline by Carlisle boss, and former Latics' boss, John Sheridan.

The FA disciplinary committee has opted to send Gerrard on an education course as well as issuing him with a warning about his future conduct.
