Rodgers fined £8000

Last updated : 09 January 2014 By Adam Bryant

The Liverpool boss called some of the decisions during the Premier League game at Man City 'horrendous' and questioned the FA's appointment of a referee from the Greater Manchester area for the fixture.

"Following an Independent Regulatory Commission hearing today, Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has been fined £8,000 and warned as to his future conduct after he admitted an FA misconduct charge," read an FA statement.

"Rodgers was charged for a breach of FA Rule E3 in that his post-match comments following Liverpool's game at Manchester City on 26 December 2013 constituted improper conduct in that they called into question the integrity of the match referee, and/or implied that the match referee was motivated by bias; and/or brought the game into disrepute; and/or amounted to a failure to act in the best interests of the game."
