Man Utd boss Ferguson in clear after ref rant

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is in the clear over his blast for ref Martin Atkinson after defeat at Chelsea.

Ferguson will not face action from the Football Association over his criticism of Atkinson on Sunday.

Ferguson condemned the official for his decisions during United's 1-0 defeat at Premier League leaders Chelsea.

The Scot felt the free-kick from which John Terry scored the winner should not have been awarded, and that Wes Brown was fouled as it went in.

"You lose faith in refereeing, that's the way the players see it," he said. "The referee's position to make the decision [for the goal] was absolutely ridiculous.

"He can't see anything. It was a bad decision."
