Middlesbrough have been fined £6,000 by the Football Association after the club admitted a charge of failing to control their players during the Barclays Premier League match against West Brom on January 17. The FA brought the charge against Boro for the conduct of their players after referee Mark Halsey dismissed midfielder Didier Digard. An FA statement on their official website revealed Boro had admitted the charge at a regulatory commission hearing today (Thursday), with £2,000 of the fine suspended until the end of the 2009/10 season pending any further breaches of the same rule.
