Peterborough United manager Darren Ferguson has today (January 14) received an improper conduct charge from the Football Association.
The charge relates to an incident during the half-time interval of last Saturday’s (January 10) 2-0 League One defeat at home to Colchester United.
Ferguson was sent from the technical area by match referee Jeremy Simpson after the pair exchanged words.
The FA charge reads: “It is alleged the Peterborough United manager’s language and/or behaviour during half time of this fixture amounted to improper conduct. He has until 6pm on 19 January 2015 to respond to the charge.”
Ferguson admitted after the match that he had spoken to Simpson and ignored a request from the referee to ‘shut up’.
