Martin O'Neill has been warned about his future conduct after admitting a charge of improper conduct during out match against Man U.
The statement on the official site explains that O'Neill admitted to the independent regulatory commission that his behaviour towards referee Mike Riley after the final whistle in our loss to Man U was improper conduct and that he apologised for such.
In reaching their decision, the commission took into account our manager's admission of the charge, his immediate apology to the numpty in charge and his previous good record.
O'Neill was ordered to pay the costs of the hearing but will suffer no further sanction or punishment over the incident.
And now that's over with, maybe the commission can do something useful and investigate Mike Riley's conduct during the game and they can make a determination on whether or not his performance was fit for purpose, or simply fit for Man U's purpose.
Maybe that would put O'Neill's reaction into perspective.

Err. The Vital Villa man of the match v Stoke City...
