Cristiano Ronaldo will not face any disciplinary action following his petulant kick at Michael Dawson on Saturday.

The Manchester United winger flicked out at the Tottenham defender during a dour goalless draw at White Hart Lane.

Referee Mike Dean, who took no action at the time, has looked at the incident again and deemed it to be undeserving of punishment.

The match official felt the skirmish was not serious enough to warrant a red card and, as a result, will not be charging the Portuguese superstar.

A Football Association spokesman said: "We contacted the referee, who confirmed he didn't see the incident at the time and, having reviewed footage, he has also confirmed he would not have sent the player off for violent conduct had he seen it.

"On that basis, no further action will be taken."
