Leeds United manager Neil Warnock has been charged with improper conduct by the Football Association after the 1-0 defeat at Millwall on Sunday.

Warnock hit out at referee Mark Halsey in his post-match comments after the official dismissed Luke Varney at The Den.

Varney was sent off just three minutes into the second half for an apparent elbow on Adam Smith.

Warnock said: “The amount of effort that’s gone into the game and we’re talking about a refereeing decision - it’s scandalous. When you watch the sending-off again, we don’t have thousands of Millwall fans screaming at us. It’s not caught him where he’s holding when he’s gone down.

“Referees aren’t as consistent - they’ve gone backwards, I think. I didn’t think someone of Mark Halsey’s quality and experience would have gone straight for his red card, and I think he’ll be disappointed when he sees it, but that will do us no good.”

A statement on the FA’s website read: “Leeds United manager Neil Warnock has been charged by the FA for an alleged breach of Rule E3.

“The charge is in relation to improper conduct following his side’s game at Millwall on 18 November 2012.”

The 63-year-old has until 4pm on Friday to respond to the charge.
