New York City FC defender Tayvon Gray has been suspended by Major League Soccer due to an allegation that he used language that “violates league policy,” MLS announced on Saturday.

The alleged incident occurred during City’s 3-1 home loss to FC Cincinnati on Wednesday night.

The league stated that Gray was not eligible to play while the matter is under review by the league.

Gray missed NYCFC’s scoreless draw with the New England Revolution at Yankee Stadium on Saturday.
