The Newcastle Jets advise injured midfielder Ben Kantarovski has been fined and disciplined by the club following an incident last Saturday night.

Kantarovski has been undertaking intensive rehabilitation for more than 12 weeks on a serious knee injury suffered in Round 4.

He was expected back in several weeks but unfortunately an injury sustained during the incident means he will be out for the rest of the season.

CEO Robbie Middleby said while they are disappointed he ignored Club protocol while in rehab, no one is more upset or disappointed over this incident than Kantarovski himself.

"Ben is aware he has let down the club, his teammates and all our members, fans and corporate supporters in a critical part of the season," Middleby said.

The police were not called to the incident and Kantarovski has been dealt with by the Club-s internal disciplinary committee.
