Darren Ferguson has been given an immediate two-match touchline suspension and £1,500 fine for two breaches of FA Rule E3.1 that took place around the 71st minute of Peterborough United’s game against Derby County in the EFL League One on Saturday 26 August. 

The manager denied a charge that he acted in an improper manner and/or used abusive and/or insulting words and/or gestures before he was sent off. He also denied a charge that his behaviour was improper in failing to leave the technical area immediately after being sent off.

An independent Regulatory Commission found these charges to be proven and imposed his sanctions following a hearing. Its written reasons for these decisions will be published in due course.
