Published Add your comment

Football Association chairman David Bernstein has called the crowd incidents at the Manchester derby "deplorable" and says they must be "dealt with severely".

Rio Ferdinand was struck by a coin thrown from the crowd as Manchester United celebrated Robin van Persie's deflected last-minute winner, while only the intervention of City keeper Joe Hart prevented another fan confronting the defender.

And Bernstein told Sky Sports News: "It is deplorable to see those incidents and to see Rio Ferdinand with blood on his face is absolutely terrible."
