David Beckham has been fined by Major League Soccer following his ugly confrontation with Los Angeles Galaxy fans earlier this week.

MLS commissioner Don Garber dished out a US dollars 1,000 (£609) penalty to the former England captain on Friday evening.

The 34-year-old has endured a rocky relationship with American supporters since returning to the Galaxy after a five-month loan stint with AC Milan.

Galaxy fans in particular were angered by Beckham's reluctance to return from Europe, where he is expected to return at the end of the MLS season.

It was against his former San Siro team-mates on Monday that Beckham apparently lost his cool with the constant barracking from the stands.

The former Manchester United and Real Madrid midfielder marched over to a section of supporters and had to be restrained by security as he sought to make his point.

An angry fan also jumped down from the stands and attempted to reach Beckham before having his way blocked.

It was the veteran's first home match since returning to the Galaxy, and he was greeted with several hostile banners reading messages such as 'Go Home Fraud' and 'Hey Becks, Here Before You, Here after You, Here Despite You'.

Galaxy next play at Kansas City Wizards on Saturday.
