Leeds United have been fined £20,000 by the Football Association for their Championship title celebrations at Pride Park Stadium following their 3-1 victory over Derby County in July.

Pablo Hernandez, Jamie Shackleton and an own goal from Matthew Clarke gave Leeds their win on the day and after the match the players celebrated their title win and promotion.

However, the FA has said Leeds 'failed to conduct themselves in an orderly fashion as pyrotechnic devices were used' after the match.

"Leeds United FC has been fined £20,000 and warned as to its future conduct after admitting a breach of FA Rule E20," the FA spokesman Twitter account posted this afternoon.

"The club failed to ensure that its players and/or officials conducted themselves in an orderly fashion as pyrotechnic devices were used following the completion of a fixture against Derby County FC in the EFL Championship on 19 July 2020."
