Manchester United have accepted an apology from Manchester City over a controversial placard held up by Carlos Tevez during their title celebrations.

City striker Tevez, formerly of United, was filmed on TV with a sign which read 'RIP Fergie' during his club's open-top bus tour of Manchester city centre with the Barclays Premier League trophy.

City reacted quickly to express "sincerest apologies" while Tevez also spoke of his regret. United chief executive David Gill told Sky Sports News: "I think it's right. The club acted pretty quickly. I think it was rather silly, frankly, in terms of what it said, but City acted with commendable speed. We move on and concentrate on other issues."
