Player sacked over Gareth Thomas homophobic tweet
Oxford City have sacked striker Lee Steele after he made a homophobic Twitter comment about Welsh rugby legend Gareth Thomas.
Thomas is currently taking part in Celebrity Big Brother on Channel 5 and, passing comment on the show, Steele tweeted: 'I wouldn't fancy the bed next to Gareth Thomas #padlockmya**e'.
Members of the Oxford City board were made aware of the 38-year-old forward's comment, and have decided to sack the player.
