Hull fined by Uefa for financial fair play breach, Liverpool cleared

Hull City
Hull City celebrate Robbie Brady's goal in their Europa League tie with Lokeren in August.

Hull have been fined £145,000 by Uefa for breaking Financial Fair Play rules, while Liverpool were cleared.

City boss Steve Bruce feels the penalty was a result of the costs incurred getting Hull out of the Championship.

They must pay an additional £290,000 if they are not compliant next season.

"It's tough on us because the only reason we've come under investigation is a) we've qualified for a Uefa tournament and b) because of when we were in the Championship," Bruce said.

Hull exited the Europa League at the final qualifying round stage.
