The Football Association Regulatory Commission hearing also fined Blues´ assistant first team coach Steve Clarke £5,000 - suspended until the end of the season - after he admitted a charge of using abusive and/or insulting words towards the match officials at the end of the same match.
The commission took into account Clarke´s exemplary record over 20 years in football - but he was also severely censured and warned as to his future conduct.
