United bosses cleared by FA:

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson and his assistant Carlos Queiroz have been found not guilty of improper conduct.

The pair had been charged following their criticism of referee Martin Atkinson and Professional Game Match Officials (PGMO) general manager Keith Hackett after the 1-0 defeat to Portsmouth in the FA Cup.

United had a claim for a penalty turned down, before Atkinson awarded Pompey a spot-kick and sent off goalkeeper Tomasz Kuszczak after he had brought down Milan Baros.

Ferguson was furious after the game, saying: "Managers get sacked because of things like that and he's going to referee a game next week.

"He [Hackett] is not doing his job properly and he needs to be assessed.

"I'm assessed as a manager, players are assessed, referees should be assessed properly by the right people. That performance should not be accepted by our game."

Queiroz was also unhappy with Atkinson's officiating but the pair have now been cleared by the Football Association.

I actually laughed out loud when I read that earlier. Laughed because the official line isn't that they were founf not guilty but that it was 'unproven.' Unproven? They said it on TV!

Fergie let-off irks Warnock:

Neil Warnock is amazed that Sir Alex Ferguson escaped punishment from the Football Association for his criticism of referees.

Manchester United manager Ferguson, and assistant Carlos Queiroz, were found not guilty by an independent commission earlier this week following comments made after the club's FA Cup quarter-final defeat to Portsmouth in March.

The FA are considering an appeal against the decision and Crystal Palace boss Warnock has expressed his disappointment with the outcome.

Warnock was fined £2,000 by the FA recently after comments he made about referee Richard Beeby following Palace's 1-1 draw at Bristol City in February.

The Eagles manager was expecting Ferguson to receive a similar punishment and is staggered the Scot has received a let-off.

Unbelievable

"Are you winding me up?" Warnock told the Daily Mail. "This sounds like the type of thing that is about to ruin my summer holiday!

"All I wondered was how much Fergie would be fined. I was just thinking to myself that whatever it was it probably wouldn't make much of a dent in his wages!

"But I really cannot believe this. I find it quite unbelievable that he has been found not guilty when you look at what he said and the context of what he said.

"In an age when we are supposed to be encouraging respect towards officials, I find it amazing that I was fined £2,000 for what I said and Fergie has not been punished at all."
