Manchester City midfielder Joey Barton has escaped a Football Association ban for improper conduct and/or bringing the game into direspute.
Barton signed a new City contract in the summer
But the 24-year-old, who admitted the charge, has been fined £2,000 and warned as to his future conduct.
The charge was made after Barton bared his backside at Everton fans following the Premiership match on 30 September.
Barton said: "I got a fair hearing. That's all you can ask for and the main thing is the matter's been dealt with."
Barton handed his shirt to a disabled fan after the final whistle but then reacted to taunts from home fans.
He was smiling as he dropped his shorts but the incident took some of the gloss off a hard-earned point for City - a result that ended a run of 10 defeats in their last 11 away games.
Everton fans reacted angrily before City goalkeeper Nicky Weaver intervened.
Merseysider Barton has been involved in previous incidents with Everton fans, having had an altercation with a Toffees supporter in Thailand during a pre-season tour in summer 2005, which led to him being sent back to England.
Television pictures captured the incident and police spoke to City manager Stuart Pearce about it, who did not see Barton's misdemeanour.
"The police approached me afterwards to make me aware of what had happened," said the City manager.
"I'm sure the timing of our goal had a lot to do with any over-celebration.
"Maybe also there was the fact that one or two people have been saying things about our away form."
Merseyside Police have confirmed they will take no action.
