Referee Danny McDermid has been charged by the Football Association after he was alleged to have sworn at Leeds manager Dennis Wise.

Wise claimed McDermid used bad language after a stormy match between Leeds and Gillingham at Elland Road on September 29 - for which the manager himself has been fined £5,000 and given a three-match touchline ban, the FA confirmed.

The FA released a statement, which read: "At a Regulatory Commission hearing last week, Leeds United manager Dennis Wise was fined £5,000 and given a three-match touchline ban. Meanwhile, The FA has now charged referee Danny McDermid with using abusive and/or insulting words towards Wise."
