Blades boss Warnock admits FA conduct charge
Sheffield United manager Neil Warnock has admitted a charge of improper conduct following the match with Leeds United on April 18 at Bramall Lane.
Warnock was charged by the Football Association after he was sent from the dug-out during the Yorkshire derby following a late challenge by Gary Kelly on Blades defender Craig Short.
The Blades boss had a heated exchange with Leeds counterpart Kevin Blackwell before remonstrating with fourth official Paul Robinson.
When Warnock failed to calm down, Robinson promptly reported him to referee Graham Poll who sent the Blades boss to the stands.
However, Warnock refused to go quietly and a police officer had to remove him from the touchline and usher him down the tunnel.
Warnock has requested a personal hearing.
It is the third time this season Warnock has been in trouble with the FA.
He was charged with improper conduct after flashing a V-sign at Norwich boss Nigel Worthington following the final whistle of the Blades' 2-1 defeat at Carrow Road in March.
Warnock was furious the former Sheffield Wednesday defender ignored him and refused to shake his hand following the game.
It followed FA action after Warnock admitted a charge of abusive and/or insulting language towards a match official following the 2-1 defeat by Reading in October.
Warnock confronted Grant Hegley on the pitch after the referee turned down a late penalty with Reading going on to score a last-minute winner.
He escaped a touchline ban and was fined £750 and warned as to his future conduct.
However, he may start next season - the Blades' first in the Premiership since relegation in 1994 - with a touchline ban.
