Leicester's Marc Albrighton banned for rest of season after Crystal Palace red

Leicester winger Marc Albrighton will miss the rest of the season after accepting an FA misconduct charge following his red card against Crystal Palace.

Albrighton was dismissed during the Foxes' 5-0 Premier League defeat at Selhurst Park last month and, after his sending-off, reacted angrily towards referee Mike Dean.

The FA announced on Tuesday that the 28-year-old will serve a two-match ban -- and therefore miss Leicester's two remaining games of the season -- after accepting the charge, which "relates to his behaviour towards the referee''.

Albrighton was also fined £25,000.
