Newcastle United have handed manager Alan Pardew a £100,000 fine and a formal warning after he was sent to the stands for head-butting Hull City’s David Meyler during the game between the two sides on Saturday, BBC Sport has reported.

With his side leading 3-1 at the KC Stadium thanks to two goals from Moussa Sissoko and one from Loic Remy, Pardew became involved in a heated touchline exchange with Meyler, pushing his head into the face of the Irishman after the ball had gone out of play for a Hull throw-in.

Meyler received a yellow card for his part in the incident, but Pardew sent to the stands, and he could face further punishment after the FA confirmed after the game that it would investigate.

Pardew, who has previously been warned about his touchline conduct, apologised after the game, saying: ‘I did not mean any damage to the guy but I have moved my head forward. I tried to push him away with my head. I apologise to everyone. I should not have got involved in it.’

Newcastle issued a statement which read: "It is most disappointing that this incident has taken the focus away from what was a fantastic performance by the team and an excellent result away from home which leaves the club in eighth place in the Premier League."
