Norwich City defender Martin Olsson has been charged by the FA for his reaction to the red card he received during the Canaries' opening day defeat at Wolverhampton Wanderers on Sunday.

Olsson appeared to give referee Simon Hooper a light push when he realised he was being sent off for a second bookable offence - and later seemed to kick out at a water-bottle as he headed for the dressing room.

A statement on the FA's official website said: 'It is alleged that Olsson's action in making physical contact with the referee immediately prior to being shown a red card and for his behaviour as he left the field of play amounted to improper conduct, which occurred outside the jurisdiction of the match officials.'

Olsson has until 6pm on Thursday to respond to the charge.
