Newell fined over sexist outburst
Mike Newell
Newell has never been far from controversy
Luton boss Mike Newell has been fined 6,500 by the Football Association over his comments regarding female assistant referee Amy Rayner in November.

Newell said after the match with QPR in November that the appointment of women referees and assistants was "tokenism for the politically-correct idiots".

He was severely reprimanded by the Luton Town board and made a public apology to Raynor.

Newell had denied a misconduct charge and had requested a personal hearing.

The Luton boss was incensed that Rayner and referee Andy D'Urso failed to award his side a spot-kick when QPR defender Marcus Bignot tangled with Carlos Edwards in the penalty box in the clash on 10 November.
