The Football Association have today released the following statement:

“Manchester City’s Gareth Barry will serve a one-match suspension with immediate effect after admitting a breach of FA Rule E3 in that he used abusive and/or insulting words towards a match official following his side’s match against Manchester United on Sunday 9 December 2012. Also as part of the standard penalty for this offence, Barry has been fined £8,000.”

Both the Club and Gareth Barry reluctantly accept the punishment which leads to Gareth being unavailable to take part in the weekend’s match against Newcastle.  

He will return to first-team action against Reading on 22 December.
