FA lenient on Warnock touchline ban

Sheffield United manager Neil Warnock will have to watch the Blades' first two matches back in the Premiership from the stands after being hit with a touchline ban.

The Football Association handed Warnock a six-match suspension, although four of those are suspended, and fined him £1,000 following an incident in United's match against Leeds on April 18.

The Blades boss was sent from the dug-out during the Yorkshire derby following a late challenge by Gary Kelly on Blades defender Craig Short.

Warnock 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 requested a personal hearing and admitted he was guilty of a charge of improper conduct.

The FA disciplinary commission also fined Warnock £750 today after a separate incident in the match at Norwich on March 18.

He flashed a V-sign at Norwich boss Nigel Worthington following the final whistle of the Blades' 2-1 defeat at Carrow Road.

Warnock was furious the former Sheffield Wednesday defender ignored him and refused to shake his hand following the game.

Warnock was also punished and fined £750 earlier in the season after admitting using abusive language towards referee Grant Hegley after the defeat against Reading in October.

Warnock was pleasantly surprised by the FA's ruling and told Sky Sports News: 'The suspended sentence I don't mind at all, I'm just delighted I'm only going to miss two games.

'I thought it would be a lot worse if I'm honest so I'm absolutely delighted tonight.'

The Blades boss hopes swapping his tracksuit for a business suit might help change his outlook on the touchline.

'I've got to try and do one or two things now, I think I've got to slow down a little bit,' he added.

'I don't want to change my enthusiasm or my passion, that's got to stay, but it might just curb me a little bit being dressed in a suit, not going so stupid, but it's one of many things planned.'
