Crystal Palace manager Ian Holloway has been handed a two-match touchline ban starting with immediate effect.

The ban is a result of his behaviour during and after Palace's 1-0 home defeat to Tottenham Hotspur on the opening weekend of the season.

Holloway was charged on two separate counts after Spurs new summer signing Roberto Soldado's penalty condemned Palace to defeat on the opening weekend of the Premier League season.

Alongside the two match ban which Hollaway has not appealed, the outspoken manager also been sanctioned with an £18000 fine.

In an outburst after the game the Palace manager vented his anger to reporters.

"It's going to be a long hard season for me with these people," he said.

"I had this with Blackpool. Certain clubs get fouls and others don't. I just want a bit of fairness."

A statement from the FA read: "In relation to a breach of FA Rule E3 in that Holloway's language and/or behaviour in or around the match officials' changing room after the game amounted to improper conduct, he was given a two-match touchline ban to commence with immediate effect and fined £10,000."

"In relation to a breach of FA Rule E3 in that Holloway's post-match comments constituted improper conduct in that they questioned the integrity of the match referee and/or match officials in general, and/or implied that the match referee and/or match officials in general were motivated by bias; and/or brought the game into disrepute, Holloway was fined £8,000."

Holloway will now be banned from the touchline for Palace's trip match away to Manchester United on 14 September, and will complete his ban when Swansea come to play the Eagles at home a week later.
