Gary Neville has shown his disgust at the Football Association, claiming Soho Square chiefs want robotic players who are devoid of passion.

The United captain showed how passionate he felt for his club after Rio Ferdinand’s late winner against Liverpool at Old Trafford last month, but it got him a £5,000 fine and a warning about his future conduct.

Neville: ‘I am extremely disappointed with the decision.
I believe it is a poor decision, not just for me but for all footballers. Being a robot, devoid of passion and spirit is obviously the way forward for the modern-day footballer. And I ask the authorities, ‘Where is football being taken?”

Neville has 14 days to appeal, but he feels it would be a waste of time.
