LONDON (Reuters) - Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers was fined 8,000 pounds by the English FA and warned about his future conduct on Thursday over media comments he made about match officials.

Rodgers admitted a misconduct charge following his outburst after Liverpool's 2-1 Premier League defeat at Manchester City on December 26.

Rodgers criticised the "horrendous" performance of the match officials and questioned the appointment of Bolton referee Lee Mason.
