London – Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew was spared disciplinary action by the Football Association on Monday following his expletive-laden touchline rant during Sunday's 2-0 defeat by Premier League leaders Manchester City.

However, the governing body said Magpies boss Pardew had been “reminded of his responsibilities”.

Pardew, angered by a decision to rule out a Newcastle 'goal' by Cheick Tiote for offside, let fly at St James' Park with a stream of invective directed at City's Chilean manager Manuel Pellegrini.

But the FA decided against any disciplinary action, a spokesman saying: “We have been in contact with Alan Pardew and reminded him of his responsibilities”. – Sapa-AFP
