Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew has avoided action over his foul-mouthed rant at Manchester City counterpart Manuel Pellegrini on Sunday.

The Daily Mail says Pardew has been told to improve his touchline behaviour after his foul-mouthed insult aimed at Pellegrini.

Pardew escaped disciplinary action, but an FA spokesman said: "We have been in contact with Alan Pardew and reminded him of his responsibilities."
