The FA has confirmed that MK Dons manager Russell Martin has been handed a one game touchline ban.
Martin will serve the suspension during next Tuesday’s match against Charlton at stadium mk, after admitting two breaches of FA rules during the Dons’ FA Cup tie against Burnley at Turf Moor earlier this month.
Martin was sent off by the match referee Jonathan Moss at the end of normal time during the game on January 9th.
As well as the ban, the FA has also fined Martin for his actions.
An FA statement on Wednesday confirmed the measure. The statement said, “Milton Keynes Dons FC’s manager Russell Martin has been suspended from the touchline for one match and fined £1,500 after admitting two breaches of FA Rule E3 that occurred at a match against Burnley FC in The FA Cup on Saturday 9 January 2021.
“Russell Martin used abusive and insulting words towards a match official at the end of normal time and his behaviour in failing to leave the field of play and the technical area after subsequently being dismissed amounts to improper conduct.”
