Reading defender Andre Bikey has been charged with improper conduct by the Football Association. The Cameroon international has been summoned to appear before a regulatory commission next week after he reacted angrily to being sent off in the 1-0 play-off semi-final first-leg defeat at Burnley on Saturday. Bikey was shown a straight red card after appearing to stamp on Clarets striker Robbie Blake before remonstrating and ripping his shirt off as he left the field of play. "The charge relates to Bikey's conduct during the Championship play-off semi-final first leg against Burnley," read an FA statement. "A regulatory commission will hear the case on Thursday, May 21." Bikey will already miss the first three games of next season after being handed a four-match ban.
