Abusing Ref Costs £5000
Looks like abusing a referee isn't a cheap affair these days. I'd better keep my opinions to myself in future, I'm sure David O'Leary wishes he had!
The Aston Villa boss has been fined £5000 for 'abusive and/or insulting words' directed at Graham Poll after the 1-0 win over Birmingham City. O'Leary caused yet more controversy by running towards Blues home supporters - to salute his family and the board!
O'Leary admitted the charge and the FA charged O'Leary £5000 and warned him over his future conduct.
