Hull manager Phil Brown has been fined £2,500 and warned as to future conduct by the Football Association after admitting a charge of improper conduct.

Both Brown and Newcastle manager Joe Kinnear were involved in a touchline row during the FA Cup clash at St James' Park on January 14.

The pair were sent to the stands by referee Phil Dowd, with the matter then taken up by the FA's disciplinary department. Brown admitted the charge and requested a personal hearing, but has escaped a touchline ban.

A statement from the FA read: "At a regulatory commission hearing, Hull City manager Phil Brown was warned as to future conduct and fined £2,500.

"Brown admitted a charge of improper conduct relating to a touchline confrontation involving himself and Joe Kinnear during an FA Cup match at St James' Park on 14 January."

Kinnear is currently recovering from heart surgery, and as such his hearing will be scheduled for a later date.
