BBC Sport - Alan Pardew headbutt: Match of the Day pundits' reaction

MOTD pundits on Pardew headbutt

Match of the Day pundit Alan Hansen says Alan Pardew's headbutt on Hull's David Meyler is "terribly sad", while Robbie Savage calls the Newcastle's manager's actions "inexcusable".

Pardew was dismissed from the touchline at the KC Stadium after an angry confrontation when both men went to retrieve the ball during the Magpies' 4-1 win.

Newcastle have fined Pardew £100,000 and given him a formal warning, while the Football Association said it will "investigate" the incident.
