Pardew escapes punishment for outburst
Updated 5:15pm Monday 13th January 2014 in Sport
NEWCASTLE UNITED boss Alan Pardew has escaped disciplinary action from the Football Association but has been reminded of his responsibilities after his touchline behaviour against Manchester City.
Pardew apologised for an expletive-laden rant at City boss Manuel Pellegrini, and was also involved in a running battle with the match officials as the visitors claimed a 2-0 win over the Magpies.
The FA is not taking disciplinary action but has been in touch with the Magpies boss. An FA spokesman said: "We have been in contact with Alan Pardew and reminded him of his responsibilities."
