Ezgjna Alioski has escaped disciplinary action after the defender's gesture he allegedly made towards Dwight McNeil last month.
In their 4-0 victory over Burnley, Alioski was alleged to have made a gesture that could be perceived as discriminatory. The Leeds defender told FA his 'cry baby' gesture wasn't 'intended to be discriminatory'.
Burnley players made a complaint saying the gesture could be perceived as discriminatory, saying it could also be perceived as a "childish schoolyard gesture".
None of the witnesses interviewed "conclusively believed" Alioski had made a discriminatory gesture.
In a statement, the FA said there was not sufficient evidence to charge Alioski, but believed the complaint had been "made in good faith" and was not an "intentionally false or malicious allegation".
