The FA have fined Hull City manager Phil Brown £2,500 for his part in an argument with Newcastle United manager Joe Kinnear during an FA Cup third round fixture at St. James' Park on January 14.

The Tigers boss has also been given a warning with regard to his future behaviour after he admitted to a charge of improper conduct.

The incident resulted in referee Phil Dowd having to send both Brown and Kinnear to watch Hull run out 1-0 winners from the stands.

Although Brown admitted to the charge brought against him, he was not handed a touchline ban.

"At a regulatory commission hearing today, Hull City manager Phil Brown was warned as to future conduct and fined £2,500," an FA statement reads.

"Brown admitted a charge of improper conduct relating to a touchline confrontation involving himself and Joe Kinnear during an FA Cup match at St. James' Park on January 14."

Kinnear's fate has yet to have been decided as he is currently recovering from heart bypass surgery.
