The Football Association will consider launching an appeal against an independent commission verdict that cleared Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson and his assistant Carlos Queiroz of improper conduct.

The pair were charged in relation to comments made following United´s FA Cup defeat by Portsmouth on March 8. Ferguson´s charge concerned comments about referee Martin Atkinson and referees´ chief Keith Hackett, while Queiroz´s charge related to comments about Atkinson.

However, at an independent regulatory commission hearing on Wednesday the charges were found ´not proved´.
