Crystal Palace boss Ian Holloway will serve a two-match touchline ban after accepting charges of improper conduct and bringing the game into disrepute. Holloway, who made the comments following his side's 1-0 defeat by Tottenham on 18 August, has also been fined £18,000.

An FA statement read: "Ian Holloway will serve a two-match touchline suspension with immediate effect after Crystal Palace notified the FA that they would not be appealing the sanction."
