FA FINE FOR PAUL

12 November 2020

“My comments were aimed at his judgment calls during the game and not his integrity as a referee”

Paul Lambert has been fined £1,750 after admitting a charge for a breach of FA Rule E3 that followed Blues’ defeat at Lincoln last month.

The Town boss’ comments in a post-match interview were judged to have brought the game into disrepute and constituted improper conduct.

Paul attended a ‘virtual’ personal hearing and apologised for his comments made about referee Kevin Johnson after the official awarded a controversial penalty that gave the Imps a 1-0 win.

“I’ve sent my apologises to the referee for any offence my comments may have caused,” Paul told the Club website.

“They were said in the heat of the moment after a game where I felt we lost because of the ‘wrong’ decision to award a penalty to Lincoln.

“My comments were aimed at his judgment calls during the game and not his integrity as a referee.”
