(CNN) -- Hull City manager Phil Brown has been fined £2,500 ($3,640) and warned as to future conduct by the English Football Association after admitting a charge of improper conduct.
Phil Brown has been warned about his future conduct after a touchline row with Joe Kinnear in January.
Brown, who accused Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas of spitting at his assistant manager Brian Horton after Hull's 2-1 FA Cup defeat at Arsenal on Tuesday, was involved in a touchline row with Newcastle manager Joe Kinnear during an earlier round of the competition in January.
The pair were sent to the stands by the referee, with the matter then taken up by the FA's disciplinary department. Brown admitted the charge and requested a personal hearing, but has escaped a touchline ban.
A statement from the FA read: "At a regulatory commission hearing, Hull City manager Phil Brown was warned as to future conduct and fined £2,500.
"Brown admitted a charge of improper conduct relating to a touchline confrontation involving himself and Joe Kinnear during an FA Cup match at St James' Park on 14 January."
Kinnear is currently recovering from heart surgery, and as such his hearing with the FA has been scheduled for a later date.
