Chelsea legend Lampard charged for misconduct

The Football Association has announced that Derby manager Frank Lampard has been charged with improper conduct following his side’s Championship defeat to Rotherham on Saturday.

Both Lampard and Tom Lawrence were sent off as the Rams’ three-game winning run came to an end at New York Stadium. Lawrence was dismissed for a bad foul on Richard Towell in the 58th minute and five minutes later the Millers made the numerical advantage count when Ryan Manning converted from the penalty spot after Kyle Vassell was adjudged to have been fouled.

Lampard then saw red in the 77th minute when he left his technical area to complain about a decision.

The FA said in a statement: “Derby County manager Frank Lampard has been charged following the game against Rotherham United on Saturday [15/09/18]. It is alleged that his behaviour in the 77th minute amounted to improper conduct.”

Lampard has until 6pm on Thursday to respond to the charge.
