Ciderspace News Page : Russell Given Knuckle Rap
13 December 2008 : Russell Given Knuckle Rap
Yeovil Town manager Russell Slade has been 'warned as to his future conduct' after he was found guilty at an FA hearing yesterday regarding an Improper Conduct charge incurred following a home match in October.

Russell was charged with improper conduct following an altercation with match referee Keith Hill over his decision to red card Danny Schofield in the home match against Southend United. Slade labelled the referee as 'arrogant' after he refused to review the match video. Despite the FA agreeing with Slade that Hill had got the red card decision wrong, overturning Schofield's red card, they still charged him and Slade consequently requested a personal hearing to discuss the case.

Perhaps mindful that Russell's outburst was at least partially justified, the FA have merely warned him as to his future conduct and ordered him to pay the costs of the hearing, which the Western Daily Press state was held in Ashton Gate yesterday. However, there will be no touchline ban as part of the punishment. Russell's previously clean record at Huish Park will also doubtless have helped him - this was his first FA call-up in 2.5 years as Yeovil Town manager.
