Touchline ban for Sir Alex

Touchline ban for Sir AlexThe FA have handed Sir Alex Ferguson a two-match touchline ban and a £5,000 fine for his outburst towards referee Mark Clattenburg.

The United manager will have to watch the Reds' matches against West Ham and Birmingham City from the stands as a result of the ruling.

Sir Alex had earlier admitted the charge for comments he made to Clattenburg at half-time during United's defeat at Bolton last month.

A statement from the FA read: "At a Regulatory Commission hearing yesterday, Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson was given a two-match touchline ban, starting on Friday 28 December. He was also fined £5,000.

"As he did not request a personal hearing, the case was dealt with on the basis of written statements and video footage."
