Crystal Palace midfielder Jason Puncheon has been fined £15,000 and warned about his future conduct after admitting a Football Association charge for comments he made on Twitter in relation to his former manager Neil Warnock.

Puncheon, 27, posted a series of tweets - which he later deleted - following criticism of a penalty miss by Warnock, who had signed him on loan when manager at QPR in September 2011.

The FA charged Puncheon as a result and has now fined him for the tweets.
