London - Stoke City manager Mark Hughes has been fined 8 000 ($13 100, 9 600 euros) after admitting a charge of improper conduct, the Football Association announced on Thursday.

The charge related to his dismissal from the touchline during Stoke's 5-1 Premier League drubbing at Newcastle United last week.

Hughes was sent to the stands after reacting angrily when Stoke midfielder Glenn Whelan was sent off for two bookable offences during the first half of the game at St James' Park, when the visitors were 1-0 up.

Stoke defender Marc Wilson was also sent off during the game.

The Welshman has, however, avoided a touchline ban, meaning he will be able to take to the dug-out for his side's FA Cup third-round tie at home to Leicester City on Saturday.

"Stoke City manager Mark Hughes has been fined the standard penalty of 8,000 after he admitted an FA misconduct charge," read a statement from the FA.

"The charge was that his behaviour in or around the 40th minute of Stoke's game against Newcastle United on December 26, 2013 amounted to improper conduct."
