Middlesbrough head coach Aitor Karanka has been charged with improper conduct by the Football Association following an incident at the end of their 1-1 draw with Blackburn on Saturday.

Karanka was frustrated that Rudy Gestede's equaliser was allowed to stand after what he believed was a foul on goalkeeper Dimi Konstantopoulos.

Referee Mark Clattenburg sent the Spaniard off for his complaints.

The 41-year-old has until 18:00 GMT on Friday to respond to the charge.
