Liverpool assistant manager Sammy Lee has been warned about his future conductby the Football Association's Regulatory Commission.
After manager Rafa Benitez was charged with improper conduct, Lee admitted the same charge after being reprimanded over his conduct towards fourth official Stuart Attwell during the club's defeat to Tottenham on the Reds' opening day of the season.
Lee protested with Atwell after two penalty appeals were rejected in a tense finale and was sent to the stands by referee Phil Dowd.
The commission opted against a stiffer penalty having taken into account the former Bolton boss' 'exemplary' disciplinary record.
