But Robins chairman Paul Baker has warned the Town boss not to repeat such behaviour in the future.

Yates issued a public apology on Sunday for the use of bad language aimed at a supporter immediately after the promotion-chasing club's disappointing defeat at Home Park.

The fan in question had singled out substitute Kaid Mohamed for strong criticism at the end of the game.

Baker told the Gloucestershire Echo: "It was an abysmal performance at Plymouth and I think we probably all felt like swearing, but Mark should not have said what he said.

"We have mentioned it to him and stressed to him that he must try to bite his tongue in those sorts of situations in future.

"We are all human and it was a heat of the moment thing so I do not envisage any action being taken.

"It shows Mark's passion and that is essential for a manager to have, but it's all about ensuring that is pointed in the right direction.

"It's been a great season to this point and we want to put this incident behind us now and look forward to Saturday's match."

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
