Football Association will take no disciplinary action against Scunthorpe United manager Brian Laws
THE Football Association has confirmed it will not be taking any disciplinary action against Brian Laws for the red card he received last weekend.
The Scunthorpe United manager was ordered to watch the second half of the Iron’s 3-0 defeat at Yeovil Town from the stands as a result of his reaction to a decision made by match referee Dean Whitestone on the stroke of half-time.
Laws was angry at a challenge by Glovers defender Byron Webster, when he took out Akpo Sodje rather than the ball as the Iron striker raced through on goal.
Had Whitestone given the foul, the Yeovil defender would have had to have been dismissed for a professional foul.

Instead he escaped punishment – much to the Iron manager’s frustration.
“The referee’s report has come in and they’ve dropped it,” said Laws, who admitted after the game that he did not know whether he would face a further punishment.
“I won’t get fined or miss any games through a touchline ban.
“They’ve obviously seen it was pretty frivolous.”
A spokesman for the Football Association today confirmed to the Telegraph: “Brian Laws was warned but no formal disciplinary action was taken.”
