Gary Neville has lost his appeal against a £5,000 fine from the Football Association for his celebrations during the Premiership win against Liverpool in January.

Rio Ferdinand scored a late winner and Neville ran to the Liverpool fans to make a gesture and grab his club badge in jubilation.

The 31-year-old was fined and also warned about his future conduct, but he appealed against the decision.

During Monday’s goalless draw against Middlesbrough, Neville confronted an angry United fan, although it is understood he will not face any further action over the incident.
