Following widespread criticism and a few laughs from others, Elliott apologised for his “senseless” actions.
He said: “I would just like to wholeheartedly apologise for any offence caused on the back of a video of me currently circulating on the internet.
“The video was taken whilst messing around with friends in a private environment and was not directed at any individual but I realise that my actions were both immature and senseless.
“I would like to stress that the contents of the video do not represent who I am as a person or how I’ve been brought up, and I truly am sorry.”
Now that the FA’s investigation is complete, he is banned from playing in all domestic club football until the 25th of October.
Elliott has been also forced pay a £350 fine and complete an Football Association education course.
