Former Sunderland manager David Moyes behaved “entirely inappropriately” when he told BBC reporter Vicki Sparks that she might “get a slap”, an independent panel ruled.
In a ruling released by the Football Association, a commission chaired by barrister Craig Moore accepted Moyes’ comments were “attempted humour”.
However, it said his actions were “wholly unacceptable”.
He was fined £30,000 by the FA in June. The ruling has now been published.
