No charges will be brought against Keith Millen following a successful appeal.

Gills Interim Head Coach Keith Millen has been successful in his appeal against a misconduct charge.

Millen was shown a straight red card during the first-half against Walsall earlier this month for a breach of FA rule E3 which states: 

`A Participant shall at all times act in the best interests of the game and shall not act in any manner which is improper or brings the game into disrepute or use any one, or a combination of, violent conduct, serious foul play, threatening, abusive, indecent or insulting words or behaviour.`

After a written response, in addition to video footage, the Members of the Regulatory Commission found the charge to be not proven and, as such, no charges have been brought against Keith Millen. 

Having received confirmation from the Football Association, Keith said: "We submitted our defence, the FA submitted what their thoughts were and the commission has decided it is unproven.

"It's a relief, not so much of what the punishment might have been but, from my own point of view, to sort of clear my name. It didn't sit well with me that I had been charged with misconduct.

"I still feel a little bit hard done by because I think the sending off had a big impact on the game [at Walsall]."
