QPR fined £20,000 over player misconduct

QPR have accepted an FA charge of failing to control their players during their 2-2 Barclays Premier League draw against Manchester City earlier this month.

Rangers players were incensed when referee Mike Dean denied striker Charlie Austin two goals in the eighth minute – the first for offside and the second for an infringement by City goalkeeper Joe Hart.

An FA statement read: “Queens Park Rangers have been fined £20,000 after admitting an FA misconduct charge and accepting the standard penalty.”

Austin did eventually score a goal that counted in the 21st minute to put QPR ahead but two Sergio Aguero goals sandwiched an own goal from Martin Demichelis as the spoils were shared.
