Man Utd boss Ferguson escapes FA punishment for weekend rant

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson will escape the wrath of the FA following his referee rant after the 1-0 loss to Chelsea on Sunday.

The Scottish tactician, who has been giving the referees a lashing in recent times, again questioned a decision, labeling a free-kick to Chelsea that resulted in the winning goal as 'absolutely ridiculous'.

The decision was made by Martin Atkinson who copped the ire of a clearly frustrated Ferguson but on this occasion he will not be punished by the FA.

Earlier in the season, Ferguson questioned the fitness of referee Alan Wiley, admitting guilt to an improper conduct charge following his comments.
