Ferguson will face no action

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson will not face punishment for confronting referee Mike Dean at Old Trafford, the FA has confirmed.

Ferguson was furious after Dean overruled assistant Jake Collin and awarded Newcastle's second goal in the Red Devils' 4-3 win.

The FA on Thursday confirmed no action would be taken against the Red Devils boss as Dean made no reference to Ferguson confronting him in his report. Ferguson approached Dean as he made his way out for the second half, before rounding on the fourth official Neil Swarbrick and Collin.
