​Brentford and Ireland midfielder Alan Judge has been warned after being found to have breached the FA's laws concerning anti-doping regulations as stated by the​ clubs official website.


Judge, 27, suffers from asthma and has been warned for his use of the inhaler, after the presence of salbutamol, above the WADA permitted threshold was found in the players system.

The midfielder has denied the charge, who will be targeted for regular testing in the next two years.


However, despite the warning, the sanction set by the FA Regulatory Commission reported Judge had shown "No Significant Fault or Negligence". 


His club Brentford had their say on the matter: "Alan has suffered from exercise-induced asthma since he was a child and was given permission to use the inhaler.

"Following a match last August, Alan's levels of salbutamol from his inhaler use were found to be slightly above the threshold, however in mitigation, he provided a full explanation of the circumstances surrounding this.


"The FA found the case proven due to the level of salbutamol but acknowledged Alan's strong arguments in mitigation by issuing a decision which confirmed that he demonstrated "No Significant Fault or Negligence.


"The club will not be making any further comment."

Judge was included in the PFA Championship Team of the Year this season, with a total of 14 goals and 12 assists in 38 appearances, marking his first season in a Brentford shirt as a successful one.


The midfielder has been out of action for a while now as he suffered a broken leg back in April.
