Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has admitted a Football Association charge of using abusive and/or insulting words to a match official.
Ferguson was charged after confronting referee Mark Clattenburg at half-time of United´s game at Bolton on November 24.
The Scot was unhappy at some physical tackles going unpunished during the first half of the match, which the Red Devils lost 1-0. He has not requested a personal hearing and a regulatory commission will consider the charge in due course.
