Palace boss Warnock charged with improper conduct over his 'disgraceful' comments

Last updated at 17:06 29 February 2008


Neil Warnock has until March 13 to respond to an improper conduct charge by the Football Association over his comments after Crystal Palace's draw at Bristol City.

Palace boss Warnock was furious with City's last-gasp equaliser, which came

after the minimum stoppage time of four minutes had been played.

Referee Richard Beeby had played almost a minute over the time indicated by the

fourth official, although that initial period is a minimum amount and does not

take into account other stoppages.

City skipper Jamie McCombe headed in a corner during the fifth minute of added

time to deny Palace victory, and Warnock made his feelings clear after the final

whistle.

"They go back to their jobs, referees, and give no thought about professionals

like us having to work as hard as we've done tonight," he told Sky Sports.

"So what? It's only a penalty, it's only a goal, it's only an extra minute,

I'm enjoying myself'. Dear me, it's disgraceful."
