Newcastle: Newcastle fined manager Alan Pardew 100,000 pounds and gave him a formal warning on Saturday for headbutting an opposition player in the Premier League game at Hull.

The 52-year-old clashed with Hull's David Meyler during his side's 4-1 win and later apologised for the sensational incident. Despite apologising, Pardew will still face a Football Association investigation.

Pardew appeared to take umbrage when Meyler pushed him to recover the ball as the hosts tried to get back into the game at 3-1 down during the second-half on Saturday and the manager offered no protest when referee Kevin Friend sent him off.
